This last December I joined the NCSPA. In the past I had many opportunities to join other organizations who claim to represent police officers. My concern has always been for protecting cops here in NC. Laws and politics of North Carolina can be very unique to police officers here in NC. It is for that reason I made the decision to join the NCSPA. Keep the money here in North Carolina and you’ll keep me as a member!
I have been getting statements from another police association with payment do to them. The statement is set up like an actual billing statement. The tone can be considered very threatening in its content. Any officer who has gotten one of these discard it in any manner you choose. You’re under no obligation to belong in an organization you don’t want to. I’m glad I don’t have that as an issue with the N C Sheriff Police Alliance. Thanks guys for all you are doing. You handled my case with my department in a very well thought out and positive manner. Best money I ever spent. Representation on a moment’s notice. Things started happening right away. Issues were resolved instantly upon notice where time and movement made the difference.
As a deputy sheriff in NC I feel that we have finally found an organization who understands the real needs and issues of a deputy sheriff. I called NCSPA at the number provided. I was anticipating leaving a message. Fortunately, the question I had was not an emergency. However, I did not realize that when I made the call at 3:20am the call would be answered by a live person. Not only was it a live person but it was the secretary himself, Rickey Padgett. I thought I was going to speak with the answering service. He told me that they did not use the answering service because it was too impersonal to the members and that when I had an issue I needed answers or I would not be calling. I quickly apologized for call that time of the morning. We spoke another 10 minutes and my questions were answered. WOW, what a way to go! I’m now a proud member of the NCSPA. If you’re not a member when you read this you need to get on it right away! Join today!
While I’m not a police officer I am the wife of one. My husband works long hours to provide for the family. He works his primary job and two part time jobs. I work a full time job and we have 3 children. I did not know you guys existed until I found you on a google search. However, with issues for law enforcement being what they are I am glad to see you here in the state of North Carolina. My dad was a cop for 32 years. I know what it’s like to belong to a police family. When I called the number provided on the web site the last thing I thought was that I would speak to someone with answers and a positive commitment for law enforcement officers. This is rare in this day and time when you have to search for good guys. I googled in the NC Governor’s race and wanted to see who cops were supporting, and there it was NCSPA and the Troopers Association supporting Bev Perdue. Through your web site I have been placed on an email list that keeps me current to law enforcement issues and key political races. Needless to say Bev Perdue has my vote for NC Governor along with the vote of my family and friends. I am able to pass a long vital information on law enforcement issues that do affect cops everywhere. My husband is informed by the web site and emails through me on almost a daily basis. He actually gets tickled over it as he thinks I can be over informative. Either way thanks for the web site and your services to cops like my husband and the spouses.

As one who has been involved in an officer shooting I can tell you the importance of having your own attorney and not your agency attorney to represent you. I was charged with an incident involving a shooting of a suspect. When you pull the trigger or you are charged with another type of duty related incident your life will take on a new meaning. I didn’t have my own attorney and I did not think I needed one. After all, I’m one of the good guys, Right? My agency will protect me, wrong! Everybody stood behind me and supported me until I was charged. After being charged my leaders actually stood on the other side in what they called a neutral position. It was not politically correct to support me. I have found out who my true friends were along with what a real cop looks like. A real cop is one who stands beside you when you have done the right thing even when the political winds and your leaders have let you down because of it. I met one of your NCSPA leaders when he was visiting family in my area. He did not know that I had been involved in any critical incident, nor did I tell him. He gave me a card and asked me to join. I began to think about it, since then I have decided to forgo the badge and the gun for law enforcement purposes. I no longer live in North Carolina. I am only looking to join as a non-law enforcement member. I chose to quit what I still consider an honorable career after being hung out to dry. I just wish you guys would have been around during my critical time of need. The individual I spoke to in the NCSPA is very informative and inspirational in his genuine concern for helping officers and being there in a time of need. To all cops I would say if you don’t belong to the NCSPA them you’re the fox in a fox hunt. Protect your family and career. Join the NCSPA!
