Thank you for supporting police

To the Editor: 

On behalf of our state’s police officers, corrections officers, and dispatchers, we’re writing to publicly say “thank you” to Senator Jason Rarick and Representative Nathan Nelson for their steadfast support of increased public safety efforts during the past legislative session in St. Paul.

With increasing crime, it’s especially important to stop all efforts to defund, demoralize, or demonize public safety officials who keep communities safe by deterring lawbreaking and aiding victims of crime.

These legislators are tremendous advocates for our first responders and public safety officials and stood against attempts to defund and dismantle the police. They voted to promote public safety legislation such as pay raises for law enforcement officers and investments in training programs.

Thank  you for supporting public safety and law enforcement.

Brian Peters, executive director

Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association
