Press Release

Congressman Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.) recently pledged to support America’s law enforcement officers and oppose efforts to defund the police.

“Law enforcement officers in Montana leave their homes every day knowing they may not return. They put their life on the line to protect our communities. To protect them, we must stand firmly against efforts to defund the police,” Gianforte said. “I thank the men and women in blue who serve and make a difference in our communities. I support you.”

Heritage Action’s full “Police Pledge,” which Gianforte signed, may be found below:

“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.’”
