They have finally sided with Trump.
The National Association of Police Organizations which has been endorsing Democrats since Obama was elected, has recently ditched Biden and is endorsing President Trump.
A letter from the president of NAPO states, “Our endorsement recognizes your steadfast and very public support for our men and woman on the front lines, especially during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by so many.”

During the 2008 and 2012 election years, NAPO had endorsed Obama-Biden, but it seems like they will be switching up their endorsement this year.
Trump campaign has made sure to jump on the opportunity and welcomed the NAPO with open arms.
A statement from the campaign reads:
“Joe Biden has done nothing to stop his party’s ‘defund the police’ movement and remains silent as police officers across the country are being attacked by violent rioters and protesters. This endorsement for President Trump highlights that as the Law and Order President, he is defending the hardworking people who risk their own lives every day to keep our communities safe.”
