DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – Support for Dallas Police is evident through a series of billboards discouraging proposed budget cuts to the Police Department.
The billboards are funded by the conservative think tank Heritage Action.
“They’re meant to support law and order and safety and security for our communities,” said Heritage Action Press Secretary, Noah Weinrich.
The billboards are up in Dallas while the City Council considers re-allocating $7 million from Police overtime to community programs. An official vote on the budget is set for September 23.
The billboards read “No Police, No Peace.”
The signs are up in in New York City, Dallas, and Atlanta.
“Americans want safety, security and a clear vision for how to quell the violence. I am excited to announce the launch of these billboards today because you cannot have peace without the police,” Jessica Anderson, Executive Director of Heritage Action said. “These cities are facing rising violence, deep cuts to public safety, and the resignation of their top police officers. This is a time for all citizens and leaders to come together to support the important work and sacrifices of our law enforcement officers and push back against the Left’s campaign to defund the police.”
In New York City, the billboards are displayed in Times Square on 7th and 48th and Broadway and 44th; in Atlanta, one billboard stands across from CNN headquarters on Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Marietta St while the other is on Peachtree Rd E and Paces Ferry; in Dallas, the billboards stand downtown at Main St, off I-45, and on Cedar Springs Rd. Together, the billboards will reach a weekly audience of nearly 4 million, and will be displayed for two weeks.
