Citizens Behind the Badge Launches New Website and Podcast in Support of Law Enforcement

June 6, 2024
New assets will expand the organization's efforts to increase public support for America's peace officers.

McLean, VA (May 24, 2024) - Citizens Behind the Badge (CBB), a national nonprofit law enforcement advocacy organization, has launched a new website and podcast intended to expand their efforts to end the “defund and defame the police” movement and to honor the service and sacrifice of America’s peace officers.

Their new and enhanced website ( is highlighted by a vast collection of facts and figures about policing and crime in our nation. Some of the information highlighted on their homepage includes: more than 24,000 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty throughout our nation’s history; there has been a 21.5 percent rise in homicides nationwide when comparing totals from 2023 to 2019; 73 percent of officers surveyed have never fired their weapon in the performance of duty; of the more than 50 million interactions with the public each year, force of any kind is used by officers less than 2% of the time and misconduct by officers has been cited in only 1% of those interactions; and America now has the lowest number of police officers per resident than at any time in more than 25 years.

In addition, the website provides numerous examples of the “troubling consequences of the defund and defame the police movement,” as well as ways in which “law enforcement is always working to get better.” There is an entire section of the website that pays tribute to active and fallen police heroes. And the website provides an opportunity for visitors to sign a “declaration of support” for law enforcement that is sent to police chiefs and sheriffs across the country.

The organization’s new audio podcast is entitled, “Heroes Live Forever,” and it tells the stories of law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The podcasts are produced on Substack and are available for free on Apple, the CBB website, Spotify and Rephonic ( The first “Heroes Live Forever” podcast paid tribute to Boston Police Detective Sherman Griffiths, who was shot and killed during a drug raid in 1988, which inspired four of his brothers to follow in his footsteps. The second one now available tells the story of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel “Danny” Faulkner, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in 1981. His killer was sentenced to death, but remains alive to this day and, unbelievably, has become a best-selling author and international cause celebre.

“Remembering and honoring our fallen law enforcement heroes is of the utmost importance to our organization and to me personally,” stated CBB founder and president Craig W. Floyd. “Those officers who made the supreme sacrifice protecting and serving their communities must never be forgotten.” Mr. Floyd led the effort to build the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. and he also now serves as the Founding CEO Emeritus of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
