Ben is a lieutenant with the Phoenix Police Department and has been with the agency for 33 years. He is currently the president of the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association (PPSLA), which represents over 400 supervisors of the Department. Ben's priority for members is ensuring that everyone has their due process rights preserved and respected, especially in this time where there is so much anti-police rhetoric and false narratives which have led to politically based actions against police officers. This is unacceptable in the law enforcement profession.
During his career, Ben has worked assignments throughout the Department. He began representing members over 14 years ago and later joined the PPSLA Executive Board as a Trustee. He later became the Secretary and then the Treasurer, before being elected as President in 2018.
Ben brought PPSLA back to AZCOPS in 2018 after becoming President of PPSLA. He did this because of AZCOPS' commitment to helping its members, the integrity of the organization, and because AZCOPS has the best legal protection plan in Arizona for law enforcement. He is committed to preserving these principles and is honored to serve on the Executive Board as your Secretary.
