Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after signing Heritage Action’s “Police Pledge” to show his unwavering support for our nation’s law enforcement officers.

“Police officers are in an honorable yet difficult profession, and they selflessly risk their lives every day to keep all of our communities safe,” said Cole. “It is their sworn duty to uphold the law, and their bravery and sacrifice should not go unnoticed. As they carry out their responsibility to serve and protect, I will do what I can to ensure funding is upheld so that they can continue to protect our communities. By signing this pledge, I am proud to stand with America’s police.”

The pledge reads:

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.”
