Washington State Fraternal Order of Police endorse Jaime for “always supporting the men and women that put their lives on the line every day”
Vancouver, WA – Jaime Herrera Beutler today announced that her campaign has earned the endorsement of the Washington State Fraternal Order of Police (WAFOP) – the state chapter of the nation’s largest law enforcement organization representing 2,600 police officials in Washington alone.
In its letter, WAFOP cited Jaime’s backing of legislation that would create federal penalties for attacks that seriously injure or kill police officers, and other solutions during her tenure in office that have provided consistent support for law enforcement. “Your dedication for public safety has shown our members that you will continue to support and advocate for law enforcement, not only in the state of Washington, but throughout this nation,” WAFOP wrote in its endorsement letter. “Thank you for always supporting the men and women that put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve within the communities they live in.”
“I’m honored that Washington’s chapter of the nation’s largest organization of law enforcement officers recognizes that I’m the best person to keep working for them in Congress. I can’t imagine Southwest Washington communities without these brave men and women who daily put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe,” said Jaime. “Every single day, I fight so that Southwest Washington residents can live securely and pursue opportunity, and it’s our law enforcement officers who make sure those rights are protected.”
