Statement of President Ben Leuschner on the DOJ Investigation -
Our job is to enforce the law.
The members of the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association - and all of the men and women of the Phoenix Police Department - take our job seriously.
We enforce the law after hearing the cries of mothers whose sons were murdered during gang activity.
We enforce the law when we are called to scenes involving domestic violence.
We enforce the law when individuals make threats against others. When people (including professionals) feel “unsafe” it is the men and women of the Phoenix Police Department who are called to respond. And we answer that call. We do our best to make scenes “safe” even when we are called to put our own safety on the line.
We enforce the rights of those who disagree with - or even hate us - to peaceably assemble. We also enforce the law when protestors decide that they will no longer be peaceful. There is no right to violence during protests. So when we are confronted with violence or illegal behavior, we enforce the law then as well.
Chief Williams said that it is a privilege to wear a badge. We agree. It’s a privilege and a responsibility to obey the law. We take that responsibility seriously.
We are not perfect. We make mistakes. But I can tell you, as the President of the organization representing the supervisors of the Phoenix Police Department, we do not deliberately or systematically violate the rights of civilians while we enforce the law.
Both myself and the organization I lead stand ready to cooperate with the Justice Department’s investigation. A full and fair investigation will show that, overall, members of the Phoenix Police Department are doing their level best - under increasingly difficult circumstances - to enforce the law.
Lt. Ben Leuschner
President - Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association
