Congressman Pete King Endorsed By Major Law Enforcement Organizations
Press Release – I am proud to have been endorsed by virtually every major law enforcement organization in the 2nd Congressional District and New York City. The groups endorsing me from Nassau County include the Nassau County PBA, the Superior Officers Association, the Detectives’ Association and the Court Officers Benevolent Association. In Suffolk County, I have been endorsed by the Coalition of Suffolk Police Unions consisting of the Suffolk County PBA, the Detective Investigators, the Detectives Association, the Police Conference and the Superior Officers Association. I also received the strong endorsement of the Suffolk County Correction Officers Association. In New York City, I was endorsed by the NYPD’s PBA and the Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains Benevolent Associations. These endorsements mean a great deal to me. Even though they are constantly attacked by special interests and their allies in politics and the media, the men and women of law enforcement continue put their lives on the line every day to protect all of us. Throughout my years in Congress I have always stood with the police. And I always will. We cannot allow critics who have never walked in a cop’s shoes to take cheap shots from the sidelines and second guess split second, life and death decisions. I thank the police, the corrections officers and the court officers for having faith in me. I won’t let them down.
