What to Know: The “Back the Blue” movement continues to gain steam nationwide. In Oklahoma, lawmakers have introduced bills showing support for police officers.

The TPPF Take: The police work to make us safer, and they need our support. The “Defund the Police” movement doesn’t get this.

“Conservatives are not new to the table in policing reform, but there is difficulty in partnering with those who are calling for defunding or police abolition,” says TPPF’s Randy Petersen. “Both sides need to step out of the elevator and have a real discussion on what the goals are and the best way to get there. Alienating all of our police officers is not a good way to start.”
