National Association of Police Organizations Endorses Obama-Biden Ticket
CHICAGO – Today, the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) endorsed President Obama and Vice President Biden from the floor of their 34th annual convention in Palm Beach County, Florida. Vice President Joe Biden spoke to the convention earlier this week.
“NAPO is proud to endorse the Obama-Biden ticket today,” said NAPO President Thomas J. Nee. “This Administration’s unwavering support for law enforcement has meant that men and women in uniform across the country have the resources they need to do their jobs safely and efficiently, protecting the communities and citizens they serve. There are simply no better friends of law enforcement – and no stronger choice to lead this nation for another term – than President Obama and Vice President Biden.”
“The President and I are honored to accept the endorsement of the National Association of Police Organizations,” said Vice President Joe Biden. “Over the past week, we again saw the incredible sacrifices of our nation’s police officers and first responders. Every day these brave men and women put their lives on the line to keep our communities safe – running into harm’s way when everyone else is running out. The President and I will continue to do everything we can to keep police officers across the country on the beat and fight back against cuts that would put our public safety at risk, and make an already tough job even tougher.”
