It seems that many police officers and people in law enforcement are Republicans and favor Trump. I guess they believe those ads that Trump runs about Biden defunding the police.

Technically they aren’t ‘former felons’; they are still felons, but felons who have had their right to vote restored. To be ‘former felons’, their record would have to be expunged.
