Police government sector lobbying associations

Taxpayer-funded lobbying is government to government lobbying. Counties, cities, school districts, public facilities, and associations of public employees frequently use public funds to influence legislation and appropriations at the state and federal levels.

The National Sheriff's Association is a police association that lobbies the U.S. Congress.[1] Local governments like Sangamon County, Illinois pay dues to belong to the National Sheriffs Association.[2] State-specific associations work a similar way.

This practice is controversial because public funds are spent to lobby for an agenda not subject to direct approval by voters, and outcomes may be contrary taxpayers benefit.
