Jackie Lacey Announces Four Law Enforcement Endorsements


Chief Deputy Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey yesterday announced that her campaign for district attorney has been endorsed by four major law enforcement groups, including the two largest organizations of frontline law enforcement officers in Los Angeles County.

According to Lacey’s media statement, the groups are: the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (A.L.A.D.S.); the Los Angeles Police Protective League (L.A.P.P.L.); the California Police Chiefs Association and the California Narcotic Officers’ Association. Together, A.L.A.D.S. and L.A.P.P.L. represent more than 20,000 rank-and-file peace officers throughout Los Angeles County.

In the statement, A.L.A.D.S. President Floyd Hayhurst said:

“As police officers, we have had the privilege of working with Jackie for many years. Jackie works tirelessly to keep Los Angeles safer and she is an aggressive and passionate pursuer of justice on behalf of crime victims.”

L.A.P.P.L. President Tyler Izen added:

“Law enforcement officers know Jackie Lacey as a leader of unimpeachable integrity and unmatched effectiveness. We need a D.A. with the experience to manage the nation’s largest local prosecutor’s office.”

The California Police Chiefs Association is comprised of police chiefs from local departments across the state and the C.N.O.A. represents more than 7,000 law enforcement officers at the local, state and federal level.

Lacey said:

“I am deeply honored to have the trust and support of so many frontline officers and police chiefs.”
