“We can’t ignore where the Sheriff came from, where this power has come from and that we as deputies and peace officers who have all sworn the same oath and that we stand united in making sure that the people in our counties have individual liberty. I don’t think there is anything in our jobs that we won’t view differently, and I’m talking about even writing tickets or doing checkpoints, roadblocks and anything that else that we do in law enforcement. It will all change once we start looking at it through the prism of the Constitution. It is our foundation, my friends. I’ve never built anything in my life, I don’t know how to build a room or a building or a cardboard box but I know this, that if you destroy the foundation, the rest of the building falls.”
-Sheriff Richard Mack
Who Is The CSPOA
“We will take America back, Sheriff by Sheriff, County by County, State by State.” -Sheriff Richard Mack
This statement is the driving force and mission behind CSPOA. Sheriffs and Police Officers are the last line of defense standing between the overreaching Federal Government and your Constitutionally guaranteed rights. Across the nation, we are all witnesses to the Federal Government’s blatant intrusions. We must draw a firm line in the sand which will not be crossed.
CSPOA will not back away from that line, it is our duty to preserve individual Liberty at all costs and we are not intimidated by the powers that be. Sheriffs and Officers who follow the Constitution line by line possess the power to shield against the Federal assault on American Citizens rights. OUR protection from THEM is our responsibility and mission.
WHAT DO WE DO?
CSPOA assembles Sheriffs, Law Enforcement Officers and Citizens who understand the grave implications of our eroding Constitutional protections. Whether it’s an illegal checkpoint violating the 4th Amendment, 2nd Amendment intrusions affecting your defense of your home or family, or ANY other infringement of your freedom, CSPOA is on the front line defending your rights and Liberty.
WHO CAN BECOME A MEMBER?

Through memberships and numbers, we show that your RIGHTS we never meant to be infringed.
AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, HOW CAN I STAND WITH CSPOA AND IS MY MEMBERSHIP PUBLIC OR PRIVATE INFORMATION?
CSPOA has a national network of Officers at every level and we respect your confidential support. The fact that we must guard our Officer’s identity speaks volumes to what we are up against. YOU have the power, as the last guard of Citizens rights, to uphold the oath you took without fear of being “outed” as a supporter of the Constitution. Become a member of CSPOA, stand strong for our Founder’s intentions and show that those who fought for our Liberty did so not in vain. Now is the time to band together for Constitutional rights, YOUR support is needed on the front line TODAY.

Founders of the Constitutional Sheriff Movement
CSPOA created the “constitutional sheriff” movement all across the country. In a large majority of sheriff races there is at least one candidate running as a constitutional sheriff or voters asking the candidates if they are one. We have changed the political landscape of this country regarding the office of sheriff.
