Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Mission & Vision:
We are a small nonprofit dedicated to bridging the gap between police and communities. Our vision is that one day communities will thrive because our police officers are mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy – reaching areas in the community that only they can. Our programs and services focus heavily on making meaningful changes that bring harmony and hope. Our goal is to go on a national level, encouraging community policing and involvement.

Back The Blue Police was created June 30, 2020 after Kara organized a Back The Blue March in
Tulsa and hosted an appreciation luncheon for the Skiatook & Sperry Police and Fire EMT
departments. While planning these events Kara received a few messages from counter protesters
that wished to create unity and understanding among police and civilians. It was clear there was
a need for all voices to be heard in a respectful and kind way.
Kara started this organization as a means to help support all law enforcement and communities. It is her hope with biblical principles and community involvement we can make life lasting changes that better our police and communities.

My great-grandfather, grandfather, brother, uncles, and cousins all served in policing in some capacity - everything from Town Marshals, FBI, to DEA. I was a police officer for 26 years and served as a college instructor teaching Criminal Justice. One day a friend refers Kara to me because she is writing a book. We started talking and after a few weeks she asked me to become more involved and offered a nomination on the board as the Director of Programs. I happily excepted and I’m now serving my community in a different capacity.
