Unless you’ve been under a rock during the pandemic, (and really, who could blame you?), you’re no doubt painfully aware of the ongoing attack on law enforcement officers across the country.
The attacks you see on the news are the obvious ones. The physical ones. The demolition of police vehicles, the bricks, bottles, rocks and other projectiles hurled at the police in a clear attempt to harm the officers. Those are the attacks getting all the attention.

Law Enforcement Officers are Under Attack
There are other attacks, seen only by the people closest to law enforcement officers and their families. These attacks are not limited to the riot zones. Looters and thugs do not perpetrate these attacks. These attacks often come silently and unexpectedly from friends and neighbors. They disrupt the peace and privacy of the officers and their families.
Spouses of law enforcement officers are ignored, dismissed, and in some cases, blatantly shunned by their neighbors. Children of police officers find themselves excluded from playing with neighborhood children, even with former friends, whose parents no longer allow them to maintain those friendships.
Simply because a parent puts on a law enforcement uniform to go to work every day, protecting the very streets these people live on.
If you ask about their job, most police officers will tell you two things: “I love what I do” and “I can’t imagine ever doing anything else”. Even as they leave their houses every day, kissing their spouse and children goodbye, with no guarantee they’ll come home at the end of their shift, these officers proudly continue to serve and protect.

How Law Enforcement Move Works
Paul Chabot understands this. Paul is former military and served in Iraq. He also served as a Deputy Sheriff Reserve for 21 years. He understands the issues facing our law enforcement officers, which is why he founded Law Enforcement Move, a national police relocation firm. Its purpose is to help active and retired law enforcement officers make the move to police-friendly communities.
LEM is part of Conservative Move, the larger corporation, founded by Paul and fellow law enforcement officers, and seen on Fox, CNN, HBO, NBC Nightly News and many others.
In Paul Chabot’s own words:
“Law enforcement officers of all races are being discriminated against because of the color of their uniform. They are under attack by criminals and cowardly politicians working overtime to defund police departments making their job more dangerous. Cops cannot help people who don’t want to help themselves.
Those in our profession now feel they are damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. They deserve to live the American dream, in America, and that’s where our team comes in to help.”
LEM exists to help the growing numbers of law enforcement officers who are stuck living in cities where the police have no support from their political leadership. They will help officers move out of those cities and into communities that are still supporting their police, and are not talking about defunding their police force.
The LEM team works hand-in-hand with a growing network of real estate agents, currently operating in 40 states across the country, assisting officers in selling their home and buying a new one. The entire process is 100% confidential.
Law enforcement officers wanting to move can contact LEM to begin the process. Designated realtors working in the desired area or areas will assist them in locating a home they’ll love…one that also makes them feel safe and welcome.
How You Can Help
Law Enforcement Move launched just a few short weeks ago, on June 15, 2020. As they do their best to help our law enforcement officers, they need your help in getting the word out about their mission.
One of their most pressing needs is for more law enforcement recruiters to contact them, so they can match officers to the communities who need them and will welcome their arrival.
LEM is proud to be helping people move while simultaneously shining a bright light on the problem cities. Over time, when crime goes up as police leave, and the cities hit rock-bottom, maybe then the citizens of those cities will decide they’ve had enough. Maybe they’ll vote in new, pro-police politicians who can fix the broken mess.
Another area you can help is to support the organizations whose mission it is to help police officers. On the LEM website, you can scroll down the page to donate to help Officer Shay Mikalonis, shot in the line of duty and paralyzed from the neck down.
Additional ways you can make a difference include:
Reach out to your local Fraternal Order of Police to see how you can help locally.
Talk to favorite restaurant managers in your area to see if they’re able to offer free meals to police officers.
Go to GiveSendGo, a conservative, Christian, fundraising site, and set up a fundraiser for an injured or fallen police officer or their family.
A Final Word
The men and women of our police departments don’t deserve what’s happening to them right now. And yet they’re still placing their lives on the line. Every. Single. Day. It’s up to us, it’s up to you, it’s up to each American to let them know just how much their commitment and sacrifice means to the majority of the citizens in this great nation. Let your voice be heard!
