Recently, Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) signed the newly launched Police Pledge.


The pledge calls on Americans to “stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to ‘Defund the Police.’” 

"Defunding the police is one of the most insane ideas I've ever heard," said Carter. "As we see waves of violence and chaos in cities across the country, it's more important than ever to defend, not defund, the police. In the First District, the police work tirelessly to keep our communities safe. Thank you to all law enforcement who put their lives on the line to protect us. We support you." 

The full pledge from the Heritage Foundation states:

A lawful society—free from mob rule and violent insurrection—is not possible without Law Enforcement.

Police Officers have chosen a noble profession. They dedicate their lives to upholding the law and protecting the sacred rights of their fellow citizens. As a profession, they deserve support and respect.

I stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to “Defund the Police.”
