Chester County FOP, Police Chiefs Endorse Dinniman for Reelection
NOTE: This press release contains updated information as of September 27, 2016.
WEST CHESTER (September 27, 2016) – Both the Chester County Fraternal Order of Police and the Chester County Police Chiefs Association have endorsed state Senator Andy Dinniman for reelection to the Pennsylvania Senate.
In a letter announcing the Police Chief’s endorsement, Tredyffrin Township Police Chief and President of the Chester County Police Chiefs Association, Anthony Giaimo wrote, “The membership appreciates all of your hard work, support and friendship on behalf of law enforcement over the years.”
Members of both organizations voted to endorse Senator Dinniman.
Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, said he would continue his work to ensure that police and law enforcement have access to the tools and support they need keep our communities safe.
“Our region is home to some of the finest and most well-trained police, law enforcement personnel, and emergency first responders in the nation,” Dinniman said. “I am honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of the Chester County Fraternal Order of Police and the Chester County Police Chiefs Association.”
In the legislature, Dinniman successfully worked to cut through bureaucratic red tape to give police and emergency first responders access to the life-saving, anti-opioid drug, Naloxone (Narcan). As a result of his work and that of many others, every police department in Chester County now carries the overdose-reversal drug and dozens of lives have been saved.
Dinniman also was the first prime co-sponsor and a driving force behind the passage of Act 105 of 2015, Pennsylvania’s first comprehensive law to fight human trafficking – which has occurred right here in our own region. He also currently serves as a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 851 to protect juvenile victims of human trafficking from potential prosecution.
In addition, he has consistently supported efforts to crack down on drunk and drugged driving by backing tougher penalties and working to keep repeat offenders off our roads. Dinniman was a strong supporter and co-sponsor of Act 33 of 2016, which expands the use of interlock ignition devices for DUI offenders.
“Public safety is a core responsibility government. Our police and law enforcement are the very men and women who put their lives on the line around the clock to keep our communities safe,” Dinniman said. “They are there always for us. And as state Senator, I’m committed to being here for them.”
