Lance for Congress today received the endorsement of the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association.
“I stand with our police,” said Lance, a member of the Congressional Law Enforcement Caucus. “I vote with the men and women of law enforcement and I am proud to receive their endorsement in this race. Results matter and this Congress pro-police lawmakers have stood up and delivered at a time when too many are turning away from public safety priorities. Residents want capable and equipped police departments in their neighborhoods. I am proud to work with the Policemen’s Benevolent Association to help make that happened.”
Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Colligan said of Lance, “While Washington remains bitterly divided over partisan and political matters, your service stands out in your commitment to the men and women of law enforcement in New Jersey and around the Nation. You have remained true to New Jersey’s law enforcement community during your service in Congress. You fought for funding for officers and resources in our communities, to protect victims of crime and to ensure that the mental health and safety of our officers is a priority in this Nation. And, most importantly, you have demonstrated respect for the officer who protect us when they have come under attack.”
Lance wrote the law that enabled local police departments to be reimbursed for the protection of the First Family in Bedminster, saving county and municipal budgets overtime costs.
