Protecting America’s Protectors
Ron Hosko, of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF), shares the organization’s mission of supporting and defending the law enforcement profession and police officers who have devoted their lives to upholding the Constitution and serving the United States and its citizens while enforcing its laws. The organization also seeks to educate the public about the many risks and threats to law enforcement personnel in an effort to build a more informed, respectful, and appreciative society.
According to LELDF’s website, for over two decades, the organization has contributed millions of dollars to offset legal expenses, as well as pro-bono legal advice, to more than two dozen law enforcement professionals and their families. LELDF is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supported solely through the generous contributions of individuals and organizations. This financial and legal assistance has become increasingly important as our society becomes more litigious and the frequency and cost of defending allegations against law enforcement professionals continues to rise.

“Police across America are on their heels, fearful of becoming the next viral video and having their actions judged by armchair quarterbacks.”
