Azcops Endorses Ken Bennett for Governor in Republican Primary

This past week, AZCOPS hosted a special meeting with Secretary of State Ken Bennett who is currently a candidate for Governor of Arizona. We proudly announced our AZCOPS endorsement for Ken Bennett in the gubernatorial Republican primary, based on his commitment to:
• Honor police/civilian benefits and pensions
• Work to improve manpower and equipment for all agencies while maintaining a healthy infrastructure for all first responders
• Work to revive the school resource officer program
• Secure more boots on the ground surrounding border issues in the more remote areas
• Work towards reasonable solutions surrounding immigration issues for people coming in and out of the country and Arizona
• Listen to all groups to resolve issues surrounding public safety and state employees

With over 35,000 law enforcement and tens of thousands of public employees in this state; we can make a difference to put the right people in office to make a positive change. Together, we need to get out and vote for that change.
