How could a backdoor that allows law enforcement to bypass encryption be implemented without compromising security?

Law enforcement continues to lobby for special backdoors to allow them to access encrypted devices and communications to prevent crime. Wouldn’t a backdoor create a vulnerability that would be an obvious target for hackers or other criminals that also want to gain access to encrypted devices or communication? Many new Android and iOS devices support encryption by default (finally!) which is a step forward with respect to data security, it seems that we would be taking a step back if law enforcement gets their wish. I am wrong...or is The Man wrong on this issue.
If it concerns you then you might want to contact your law makers and lobby against any kind of backdoor. The time to speak against backdoors is before they are implemented, so do take the time to call and write your elected officials to put a stop to it.
