PERF Executive Director calls for Vaccines to Save Police Lives from COVID

This week, Executive Director Chuck Wexler wrote an important piece about the tragedy of cops dying of COVID 19. I applaud Director Wexler for his leadership at a time when too many law enforcement leaders are silent or actively undermining attempts to get cops vaccinated to save lives.

The numbers don’t lie. In 2020, 242 law enforcement officers died of COVID 19, and so far in 2021, 137 have lost their lives to the virus.

At this point, there is not any rational argument. Get your vaccine. Stay alive. Protect your co-workers and community. It’s the very definition of protect and serve.

Here’s the link to Chuck’s excellent piece.
