Ethical Society of Police

Ethical Society of Police (ESOP) was founded in 1972 by African-American police officers to address race-based discrimination. We work to cultivate and maintain police/community relations, increase diversity within police departments, and enhance accountability and professionalism in law enforcement. Both locally and nationally, we advocate for reforms to make police departments more equitable and representative of the communities they serve and provide an honest perspective at the intersection of black and blue.
