NLPD in the Community

"I don't agree with the premise of police as a blue 'line' ... a more accurate metaphor is a blue 'thread' woven thorough the communities we serve; a thread which helps hold those communities together, creating a tapestry that reinforces the very fabric of democracy."

- Chief Charles Ramsey, Philadelphia Police Department


"We're in this together!"
