Quality local policing is the pillar of a safe and thriving community. The irresponsible and short-sighted calls for the defunding of our law enforcement pose an unprecedented threat to security and prosperity. We cannot let the amplified voices of extremists drown out what that the vast majority of Americans know to be true: freedom and prosperity are the result of better policing, not less policing.
The defunding of local police will only lead to higher crime rates, higher property rates, and worse policing! This has been proven time and time again. Policing improves with more resources, not less. This is why I have always been a loud advocate for my Police officers and ensured they have the support and resources they need to do their jobs.
I will NEVER defund our police, I defend our police!
