STAND T.A.L.L. is a copyrighted acronym for a movement called Thank A Local Lawman, and it began as an idea that our founder heard while at an exposition in Atlanta in April of 2016.
The keynote speaker at the opening of that exposition was the now nationally known, outspoken Sheriff of Milwaukee, David Clarke.
Sheriff Clarke said to the audience, "Today, there's a war going on against cops!" He talked of the many challenges today's law enforcement faces and the jobs they're asked to do, sometimes with limited staff, inadequate equipment, and often in the face of great danger; and we know that those who enter law enforcement as a career don't do it for the financial reward, but out of a true concern for their fellow citizens and to do good.
Sheriff Clarke asked only one thing of those in attendance that day, he asked us to take the time to say "thank you" to those in our hometowns who serve and protect us.
It was from that simple request that STAND T.A.L.L. was created, and now more than ever is the right time to grant his request. Here are the You Tube videos and Sheriff Clarke's comments on the "war on cops;" a second video about good cops being motivated to help others, and the third video- a eulogy for a cop who was senselessly gunned down and the ever present threat they face in every day situations... sometimes with just seconds and inches between life & death doing their duty.
