Law enforcement leaders thanked Sinema for her continued support of issues important to their community
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema met with the Arizona State Troopers Association and National Troopers Coalition to discuss her continued focus on ensuring law enforcement has the resources necessary to keep Arizona families and communities safe and secure.
“Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line – day in and day out – to protect our communities. We’re ensuring they have support to keep Arizona families safe,” said Sinema.
Since joining the Senate, supporting law enforcement and building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve in Arizona has been a consistent focus of Sinema’s. Last month, the Senator hosted a meeting with the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police. The month prior, during a bipartisan Congressional delegation visit to the Southwest border, Sinema led a bipartisan group of colleagues in celebrating and serving law enforcement officers at a law enforcement appreciation dinner on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
In December, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved Sinema’s bipartisan legislation reauthorizing the U.S. Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods program that brings together federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers, prosecutors, community leaders, and partners to identify and address the most pressing crime problems in their communities. In the bipartisan federal appropriations legislation earlier that month, Sinema also secured over $2.5 million for Arizona law enforcement.
