We are the Law Enforcement Action Partnership

Dear Readers,

We have some very exciting news to share. As many of you may already know, in January 2017, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition became the Law Enforcement Action Partnership.

For more than a year, our board and staff worked to expand into the broader field of criminal justice reform while maintaining a keen focus on our drug policy work. Not only is this expanded scope a natural fit for our speakers’ criminal justice expertise, but it’s also helping us to become even more effective at moving the drug policy reform conversation forward. And, as I wrote on the Huffington Post earlier this year, when you care about something, you want it to be the best it can be. With the right criminal justice reforms, we can do better, for ourselves and for our communities. Our new name reflects the core of our organization: 

Law Enforcement: Our commitment to addressing criminal justice issues from a law enforcement perspective and restoring trust between police and the communities they serve remains steadfast.
Action: Working toward real, tangible solutions to justice and public safety issues has never been more important.

Partnership: We will continue to build our internal network of criminal justice experts speaking out for more practical, ethical criminal justice policies: our speakers, who are the heart of the organization. And we will continue to build on our invaluable alliances with fellow drug policy and criminal justice reform organizations, working together for a better criminal justice system and improved public safety. 

By highlighting our positions on issues such as police-community relations, incarceration, harm reduction, and global issues, in addition to our longstanding work in drug policy, we are opening new doors and increasing our reach as the voice of law enforcement officers working for criminal justice reform. 

Please visit our new website to read all about the issues we’re working on.

This was a huge step for our organization, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your continued support – through your activism, encouragement, and investment in our efforts. We look forward to working with you as the Law Enforcement Action Partnership grows!

Thank you, 
Major Neill Franklin (Ret.)
Executive Director The Law Enforcement Action Partnership
