Our ability to reach our objectives is strongly tied to the support we receive from our individual donors and corporate sponsors. We depend on these individuals for the financial resources that allow us to bring programs that are "In the Community - FOR THE COMMUNITY". The benefits to our sponsors are numerous; the best of which is to be an integral part in eliminating law enforcement abuse and misconduct, and promoting police professionalism in our communities.
In the community...FOR THE COMMUNITY
The members of the National Association of Black Law Enforcement Officers, Inc. provide various levels of support both to and for the communities we come from and represent.
Whether it is the mentoring of our youth, providing information on What To Do When Stopped by the Police, advocating against police misconduct and systemic injustice, or just being there to hear and answer your questions, our members are always available.
Our mission is to provide community-based solutions to policing issues which have a direct impact on communities of color and the pivotal roles that African American, Latino, and other criminal justice practitioners of color play. We do this through various programs designed to empower youth, enhance the professional, career and personal training of our membership and others in our profession, improve the quality of life in poor and low-income communities, and strengthen the bonds between community members and their law enforcement guardians. Our tools for success include: opportunities to expose youth to the criminal justice field, training conferences for law enforcement and community members, member advocacy sessions, and various other endeavors.
Our Successful Programs
Programs provided either through the national organization or our various chapter affiliates have proven highly successful in helping sustain our communities and enhancing their relationships with law enforcement. Our youth programs provide at-risk and disadvantaged youth with positive images of self, provide an opportunity to create positive relationships, enhanced self-motivation, and increased community worth and pride.
NABLEO sponsored programs have the added distinction of:
- Insuring youth remain drug-free
- Curbing youth violence
- Establishing better understanding and bonds between police and community
- Increasing and enhancing community awareness of civil rights
- Increasing and enhancing law enforcement understanding and sensitivity to cultural differences
