A Message From Our President

First and foremost I would like to thank God for all the blessings, which he has bestowed upon me and the members of this great organization. Secondly, I want to thank the members of the Westchester-Rockland Guardians for their faith and support. It is indeed an honor to serve as President of this organization.

It gives me great pleasure to be associated with the first African-American law enforcement organization in Westchester and Rockland counties to try and bridge the gap between the police and the communities in which we serve. An organization is only as strong as it's support within the community. We must all strive for that one common goal, to be a vehicle of representation for the minority officers in the law enforcement workplace.

One of the main goals of this organization was to be visible within the communities in which we serve. We must strive to bring enlightenment, education, and professionalism to our respected positions at all times. We all must go forward with the understanding that each member is a vital part in establishing what the Westchester-Rockland Guardians stand for: Together we stand, and divided we fall. Together, we shall continue to make equality a fact of life.

We the members of the Westchester-Rockland Guardians would like to thank everyone for their support given to us by the community. This has enabled us to continue the work our founding members started and ensure that their visions are realized.

Thank you, and may God bless each and every one of you

Ret. Sgt Paul Hood

  • Many people don’t realize that police can’t stop anyone they want just because of a generalized suspicion. There are clear legal standards. Officers may briefly detain a person for investigative purposes only if the officer has “reasonable suspicion” that criminal activity is occurring. Reasonable suspicion is a step below the “probable cause” necessary for an arrest. “Reasonable suspicion” requires more than being in a high-crime area or acting furtive in front of police
