Law Enforcement Advocacy Network
Tulsa, OK – Law Officer Magazine announces a partnership with a new non-profit organization that seeks to serve and advocate for law enforcement officers that have been persecuted and sacrificed in the name of political correctness.
The Law Enforcement Advocacy Network (L.E.A.N.) seeks to bring together those law enforcement officers both former and present that have been fired, disciplined and even arrested for simply doing their job.
Former University of Florida Lt. Stacy Ettel is the Executive Director and is committed to bringing change to law enforcement leadership where morality will overcome weak leadership in the name of political correctness.
Law Officer Editor In Chief Travis Yates explains why L.E.A.N. is so important, “Whether it is Stacy Ettel or Darren Wilson, the carnage of weak leaders and political correctness is overtaking a great profession. Time and time again, we have seen good men and women literally “thrown under the bus” for simply doing their job. These stories must be told in an effort to prevent it in the future and we intend to do that in a profound way.”
While some may see this new non-profit as “controversial”, Yates explains how that mentality is part of the problem.
“As law enforcement leaders, we should vigorously get rid of those employees that are committing immoral and illegal acts but at the same time, we owe that same vigorous fight to those officers that do their job and do it well. Far too often, our leaders let politicians, media pundits and internet trolls dictate what needs to be done. How can we expect a great profession in the next generation if we do not treat our employees with more respect?”
The Law Enforcement Advocacy Network is currently operating as a project under the non-profit. Ten-Four Ministries, and as the organization builds so will it’s online presence and staff. The staff is voluntary and all donations will go towards assisting those that have been mistreated by a profession that they have given much to.
