Orlando, Fla. – The Ron DeSantis for Governor Campaign today announced the Florida Police Chiefs Association has endorsed DeSantis. The endorsement by the Florida Police Chiefs Association builds on the significant support DeSantis has garnered from the law enforcement community, including endorsements from the Police Benevolent Association, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association and numerous sheriffs from across the State of Florida.
“Florida Police Chiefs want a Governor who supports law enforcement, the principles of the association and will protect our communities,” said Amy Mercer, executive director of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. “The FPCA proudly supports Congressman Ron DeSantis for Governor. As a former prosecutor, he understands the sacrifice our law enforcement officers make when they put on their uniforms every day.”
“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of the Florida Police Chiefs Association,” said DeSantis. “Throughout my career, whether in the military, as a prosecutor or in Congress, I have always supported the brave men and women of our law enforcement community. Floridians deserve a Governor who will stand up for our heroes who work every day to protect us.”
“Unfortunately, my opponent, Andrew Gillum, has signed a pledge saying police and prisons have no place in our state, which is as dangerous as it is despicable,” said DeSantis. “As Governor, I will always stand with our law enforcement and support them in their mission to keep Florida safe.”
