What to Know: NYPD officers say they’re thankful for the show of support, following a Sunday “Back the Blue” parade in Forest Hills.

The TPPF Take: The NYC parade shows that cops and communities can—and should—engage with each other constructively.

“There are better solutions to improving community-police relations than trying to meet the destructive goals of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement,” says TPPF’s Randy Petersen. “One of the best is community engagement—bringing stakeholders together with the police department and developing relationships that can shape what policing looks like in that community. It localizes policing, which is exactly what policing should be all about. Defunding the police is just bad policy and very dangerous.”
