Florida Police Chiefs Association
Tallahassee, FL – Today, the Florida Police Chiefs Association announced their endorsement of Senator Rick Scott’s re-election campaign. Senator Scott has always stood behind Florida’s brave law enforcement officers, and he will continue to fight for them in Washington when he is re-elected. Democrats want to defund the police and diminish the brave work that our law enforcement officers do every day. But Senator Scott has been fighting back against radical anti-law enforcement Democrats in Washington.
Senator Scott is committed to combatting the fentanyl crisis, protecting Florida students, and keeping Floridians safe. He will aggressively fight for funding for grant programs that provide services for police officers and their families.
Statement from Senator Rick Scott: “I’m honored to receive the endorsement from the Florida Police Chiefs Association. This group is critical to our state and they care deeply about providing all Floridians with the opportunity to live safely. Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies have wreaked havoc on states like New York and California and we cannot ever let Florida go down that path. I’m going to keep fighting for Florida law enforcement up in Washington so they have the tools they need to do their job.”
“On behalf of the Florida Police Chiefs Association, we are honored to endorse Senator Rick Scott for reelection to the United States Senate,” said FPCA president Charles “Chuck” Broadway. “Whether he’s fighting back against efforts to defund the police, or fighting for safer learning environments, Senator Scott knows that maintaining public safety is the foundation of Florida’s success story. The Florida Police Chiefs Association knows Senator Scott has law enforcement’s back, and now we’re proud to have his.”
*In July, Senator Scott was also endorsed by 59 sheriffs from across Florida and discussed what he has been doing in the Senate to help keep Florida families safe and what he will continue to fight for when he is re-elected to the U.S. Senate. Read more here.
