Great job James Smallwood, it’s a calling and that’s exactly why those 6 officers ran towards the danger to evacuate everyone from the area.

Its what we do...

Nashville FOP President James Smallwood explains why we do the job against all obstacles:

"Policing and law enforcement, it's a calling. You have to have a servant's heart and a love for the community and without it, you would not survive in this profession...exactly why you are seeing the resiliency of officers across this country".

Reports are officers recognized the RV looked suspicious and were evacuating people from the area as the bomb went off. Truly a Christmas miracle no one lost their life, all thanks to the officers who were willing to risk theirs.

Heroes all of them!

From my family to yours have a very Merry Christmas! Here’s hoping you have a day filled with laughter and joy.

A wrong has finally been righted, thankful that former officer Stephanie Mohr has received a pardon.

🚨BREAKING: We applaud President Donald J. Trump for pardoning Stephanie Mohr, a former Prince George’s Co. Officer.

What happened to Stephanie was unjust and unfair. Thank you, President Trump, for supporting our law enforcement!

⚠️ 47 officers were killed by gunfire

⚠️ 50 officers were shot in 40+ separate ambush attacks

Officer Jason Shuping of the Concord, NC Police Department was shot and killed last night. He was only 25 yrs old and had his whole life ahead of him.

He won't be with his family for the holidays because a coward didn't want to go to jail.

This is infuriating...

Please keep the other officer shot and the families in your thoughts and prayers. #enoughisenough

Great job Santa! This year, #UndercoverSanta is bringing a big ol’ sack filled with justice!

Santa Claus and an elf were captured on video foiling an alleged car theft during a surveillance operation targeting would-be shoplifters.

Law enforcement finds ourselves in a no win situation. We continually arrest violent criminals and they are released over and over again.

It’s the equivalent of mopping the floor when the pipe is still leaking water.

We have the individuals who push revolving door criminal justice policies to thank for this. It is terrible what is happening to our urban communities.

🚨👇 This is what happens when more and more politicians embrace revolving door criminal justice policies: our communities suffer.

We are seeing decades of historic crime reductions and the Renaissance of our urban communities being thrown away in record time. For what?

Awesome job by this officer.

America's law enforcement officers serve and protect their fellow citizens and they go above and beyond for the communities they love. When this boy's mom asked an officer to help her son learn how to ride a bike, this officer stepped up! Well done, Officer! #iAM

We are watching decades of historic reductions in crime being wiped out and we will lose our urban communities for a generation if we don’t turn this around...and fast.

With one month still left in 2020, there have been 2055+ people shot in Philadelphia and 452 slayings, surpassing the highest annual total of homicides in 25 years. How bad does it have to get in the "City of Brotherly Love" before city officials stop letting criminals run the streets and start protecting the law-abiding citizens from being gunned down?

Patrick Yoes National FOP President sent the following letter to Congressional leadership urging them to include the "Social Security Fairness Act” into any legislation considered in response to the #COVID19 pandemic.

See below for the full text ⤵️

➖➖➖➖

17 November 2020

The Honorable House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House
U.S. House of Representatives

The Honorable Senator Mitch McConnell
Majority Leader
United States Senate

The Honorable Kevin McCarthy
Minority Leader
U.S. House of Representatives

The Honorable Senator Chuck Schumer
Minority Leader
United States Senate

Dear Madam Speaker, Senator McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative McCarthy,

I am writing on behalf of the members of the Fraternal Order of Police to respectfully request that the House consider including the “Social Security Fairness Act” in any future legislation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The repeal of the “Windfall Elimination Provision” (WEP) and the “Government Pension Offset” (GPO) in current Social Security law would simultaneously end a gross unfairness against retired public employees and help to stimulate the economy by eliminating a reduction in the Social Security benefits for these Americans. This would have an immediate positive impact on public employees—putting additional cash in their pocket as they and their families struggle in these trying times.

When the WEP was enacted in 1983, its stated purpose was to remove a “windfall” for persons who spent some time in jobs not covered by Social Security and who also worked other jobs where they paid Social Security taxes long enough to qualify for retirement benefits. This provision has created a very real inequity for many public employees, particularly law enforcement officers, who retire earlier than other government employees and often begin second careers which require them to pay into the Social Security system. Law enforcement officers who had second careers face as much as a 60% cut to the Social Security benefits. This is a reduction of a benefit to which they are entitled because they paid into the system—not an adjustment for a “windfall.” In the current climate of the pandemic, these reductions have a detrimental impact on our vulnerable retirees and on the economy.

Similarly, the GPO offsets the Social Security benefit to which a surviving spouse is entitled by two-thirds of the monthly amount of any government pension that they might receive. For example, the widow of a retired law enforcement officer who collected a government pension of $1,200 would be ineligible to collect the Social security survivor’s benefit of $600. Two-thirds of $1,200 is $800, which is greater than the spouse’s benefit of $600 and thus making her unable to collect it. If the spouse’s benefit was $900, she would collect only $100, because $800 would be “offset” by the government pension. Again, this offset scheme currently in place penalizes those employees least able to afford it and to an older population that is at greater risk during the pandemic. We believe this “offset” is a drag on the economy and its repeal would provide the economic stimulus our nation desperately needs right now.

The “Social Security Fairness Act” has wide bipartisan support. The Senate bill, S. 521, has 38 cosponsors and the House bill, H.R. 141, has 262 cosponsors—nearly two-thirds of that body. We believe that the repeal of these two provisions will help our vulnerable retirees make it through this pandemic and will help stabilize our nation’s economy.

On behalf of the more than 355,000 members of the Fraternal Order of Police, I urge that you make the repeal of the WEP and GPO a part of any bill Congress considers to further address the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you in advance for your consideration of our views on this matter. If I can be of any assistance whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact me or Executive Director Jim Pasco in my Washington, D.C. office.

Sincerely,

Patrick Yoes
National President

We've been saying it for months: Americans do NOT want to Defund, Dismantle, or Abolish the police!

It is way past time to abandon the radical agenda of "Defund The Police." The FOP has said from the very beginning that we are ready and willing to have fact-based conversations and to work to fix the divide between police officers and the communities we love.
