Support Our Police

About SupportOurPolice.com

SupportOurPolice.com is a national nonprofit project based in Chula Vista, California. We maintain multiple objectives with our mission of supporting our hero police officers, which include recognizing officers for excellent work, submitting commendations, providing important information and feedback to police departments, working to improve relations between departments and communities, promoting officer safety, preventing officer suicide, and raising awareness about issues we deem important.


What You Can Do

Our hero police officers protect and serve us, keeping our communities safe, responding to our calls for help, and running to danger while others are running away.

We Support Our Police

No, they are not perfect, and yes, there are some bad cops, but we contend that the vast majority of our officers are doing their best to protect and serve our communities in an ethical, compassionate, and courageous manner, and thus they deserve our support.

So what can you do in your community to support your police? You can thank them for their service, just like we thank our hero military personnel and veterans. Our hero police officers are always ready to do battle on our behalf (and risk their lives) when they respond to our calls for help.

And you can encourage other people to thank them also. We need to get as many people involved as possible so we can spread and strengthen this mindset of gratitude towards our hero officers, and so we can make phrases like “thank you for protecting and serving our community” and “thank you for your service” phrases that our police officers constantly hear.

You can also work to strengthen community relations with your police by communicating with them and working to create a positive atmosphere of respect, trust, cooperation, support, and concern for everyone in your community, including residents, officers, and those struggling in your community, such as the homeless.

And while you are doing this, you can think of the police and community as a team. All communities are at their best when the police and community work together as a team. Talk with the police. Give them your input. Interact with them. Provide them with information that you think may be helpful to them. And work to resolve community and law enforcement problems together. Your community will be better and more unified because of your efforts. Be a team player with your police and great things can happen!

Back the Blue Thin Blue Line flag

You can also create events to support your police.

And you can put up "Support Our Police" signs anywhere you think they would look good on your property, or place some stickers on your car.

You can also send them letters and submit commendations to the department when they have done excellent work.

And when their work is not up to par, you can let them know that, too. Again, they are not perfect, and there will be problems, so if you deem it necessary, file a complaint (or multiple complaints) and feel free to send letters to the appropriate personnel in the department about your concerns. If they are doing their job properly and truly care, they will respond positively to your complaints and your input. And, of course, if an officer engages in misconduct in any way, is unethical, unprofessional, rude, abusive, discriminatory, uses excessive force, or violates the law, then take all appropriate actions. We do not support any officers who conduct themselves in this way and share everyone's outrage with officer misconduct. No officer gets a pass!

No one should ever be subjected to police misconduct, and any officer engaging in misconduct will give a bad reputation to the department. So police misconduct is horrible for the department as well as the community and we must all work together to fight police misconduct of any kind.

So, we are not saying all police officers are good and that there will not be any problems, but we are saying let’s be fair and not paint all officers with a broad brush because of a few bad officers.

But let us never forget that our police officers go to work every day to protect and serve our communities, and that any day they could be killed in the line of duty. They are our local warriors, our community soldiers, and our heroes in blue. So let's support them and show them that we have their backs, just like they have ours.

Take care,
