AUSTIN – Dan Patrick, Texas State Senator and Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor, today received the endorsement of the Department of Public Safety Officers Association (DPSOA) PAC.
“We believe that Senator Patrick’s interest in supporting strong and stable law enforcement in Texas, in making sure the state’s commissioned peace officers have the tools we need to do our jobs, and his recognition of the significant challenges we face – including both public safety and personnel related – ensure that he is deserving of our full support,” said Jimmy Jackson, Vice President of DPSOA PAC.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Department of Public Safety Officers Association PAC,” said Patrick. “I thank and applaud our law enforcement officers’ efforts in protecting the lives of our fellow Texans. As Lieutenant Governor, I will make sure our brave men and women in law enforcement have the resources they need to continue to uphold the law and ensure security for all Texans.”
For nearly 40 years, the Texas Department of Public Safety Officers Association (DPSOA) has been working to advocate on behalf of Troopers, Agents, Rangers, Officers, Communications Personnel and Forensic Scientists of the Texas Department of Public Safety. DPSOA is one of the largest organizations representing commissioned law enforcement officers in Texas and includes more than 3,700 men and women who daily pledge their lives to protect Texans across the state.
