FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, July 15, 2022 Contact: email@example.com Police officer groups cite Levin’s strong work to support local law enforcement. Oceanside, CA – Rep. Mike Levin has been endorsed for re-election to Congress by the California branch of the nation’s largest law enforcement organization, the Fraternal Order of Police.
“The California Fraternal Order of Police, representing over 17,000 law enforcement officers across the state, is proud to endorse Mike Levin for re-election to Congress. Mike Levin has been a staunch friend of local law enforcement, working to ensure that our frontline officers have the tools they need to keep our communities safe. We particularly appreciate his leadership role in working to pass the Invest to Protect Act, vital bipartisan legislation to fund policing and public safety programs in smaller departments across the nation.” - Chad Jones, President California Fraternal Order of Police Levin has also been endorsed by the Orange County Peace Officers Research Association (PORAC). PORAC represents 77,000 law enforcement personnel in 950 law enforcement agencies across the state. Recently, Levin announced that he had secured $587,000 in funding to pay for in-car dash cameras for the Oceanside Police Department. Oceanside Police Chief Fred Armijo said at the time: "We've been gifted with just about $600,000 in federal funds due to the hard work on the part of Congressman Mike Levin to support this project... We're very excited to have not only the support of Congressman Levin, but these funds." Mike Levin is also working as part of a bipartisan team in Congress to cosponsor the Invest to Protect Act, to provide $50,000,000 a year in funding for police departments with fewer than 200 officers, which are often at a disadvantage in securing federal support. Cities like Carlsbad will benefit from this important legislation. “No priority is higher than the safety of the people I represent,” stated Congressmember Levin. “I am deeply honored to have the support of our frontline law enforcement heroes and look forward to continue working with them and our local law enforcement agencies to keep our communities secure.” ### ReplyReply allForward
