FBI Agents Association Statement on Threats of Violence Against Law Enforcement
For Immediate Release: August 11, 2022
The following statement can be attributed to Brian O’Hare, President, FBI Agents Association:
“FBI Special Agents are dedicated members of the law enforcement community who put their lives on the line every day to protect the public from criminals and terrorists. Special Agents and their families should never be threatened with violence, including for doing their jobs. The threats made recently contribute to an atmosphere where some have, or will, accept violence against law enforcement as appropriate. It is not. This is not a partisan or political issue. It is a matter of public safety and basic decency. Calls for violence against law enforcement are unacceptable, and should be condemned by all leaders.”
The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) is an organization dedicated to providing support and advocacy to active and former Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Membership includes more than 14,000 active and former Special Agents of the FBI. For more information, please visit www.fbiaa.org.
