Letter to the Editor: Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association thanks area legislators

Association appreciates their support and efforts during the past legislative session in St. Paul


On behalf of our state’s police officers, corrections officers and dispatchers, we’re writing to publicly say thank you to Sen. Carrie Ruud, Rep. Josh Heintzeman, Sen. Justin Eichorn and Rep. Spencer Igo for their steadfast support of increased public safety efforts during the past legislative session in St. Paul.

With increasing crime, it’s especially important to stop all efforts to defund, demoralize or demonize public safety officials who keep communities safe by deterring lawbreaking and aiding victims of crime.

These legislators are tremendous advocates for our first responders and public safety officials and stood against attempts to defund and dismantle the police. They voted to promote public safety legislation, such as pay raises for law enforcement officers and investments in training programs.

Thank you for supporting public safety and law enforcement.

Brian Peters,


Executive director

Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association
