In May 2017, AISLE hosted its Bridging the Gap forum that brought together a diverse panel, including Rep. Scott Taylor, CNN contributor Symone Sanders, PULSE Nightclub survivor Patience Carter and criminal justice reform advocate Mark Holden, to discuss the current state of police and community relations across America. Bridging the Gap was held at the United States Capitol and widely attended.

In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.” Sadly, today our public discourse is littered with misinformation and demagoguery and no community of professionals has been more adversely effected by such misinformation as the American law enforcement community. In order to improve police and community relations as well as empower supporters of American law enforcement, it is necessary to combat misinformation and demagoguery with facts and perspective.
Americans in Support of Law Enforcement has provided that balance and perspective by educating the public on the realities of policing in America. AISLE representatives have been featured on numerous television and radio programs, offering commentary on hot-button issues and timely op-eds that have been featured in major print and online publications.
