Fraudulent or Misleading Police Solicitation

Fraudulent or Misleading Police Solicitation

Resolution

WHEREAS, law enforcement organizations have long enjoyed the support and trust of the citizens in the communities they serve; and,

WHEREAS, this support and trust has been reflected by the citizen’s support of law enforcement fund raising initiatives, and,

WHEREAS, an increasing number of organizations and individuals are conducting misleading or fraudulent telephone solicitations, by posing as law enforcement officers or agencies, or using names that closely resemble law enforcement agencies; and,

WHEREAS, the actions of these individuals and organizations is undermining the public faith in, and willingness to support, legitimate law enforcement fundraising initiatives, and,

WHEREAS, citizens have the right to be certain that the donations they make to police organizations are actually received by legitimate law enforcement groups; now, therefore be it,

RESOLVED, that the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), duly assembled at its 104th annual conference in Orlando, Florida, will work with Congress and the Executive Branch to secure federal legislation that will bring truth to law enforcement solicitations made by any individual, group or organization and ensure citizens that legitimate law enforcement agencies or officers will benefit from their contributions to fundraising efforts.
