POLICE CONFERENCE of NEW YORK ENDORSES MICHAEL HENRY for ATTORNEY GENERAL
New York, NY — Attorney General candidate Michael Henry today received the endorsement of the Police Conference of New York, the largest police organization in the state.
“The Police Conference of New York is proud to endorse Michael Henry for New York State Attorney General. Michael Henry will be a partner in fighting crime and supporting law enforcement across this state. He is a strong voice for righting pro-criminal laws that have created a revolving door of justice which have made the public and our officers less safe. As the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of New York, he will be a true ally who will support us,” said PCNY President Richard Wells.
“It is an honor to have the support of the Police Conference of New York. Our law enforcement officers know that public safety is on the ballot on November 8. I am committed to working with police across this state to change pro-criminal laws that have endangered the public and officers on our streets. As the son of a retired police officer, I know people who sign up for this job love their communities and put their lives on the line everyday. They deserve to be supported and not demonized and defunded for what they do,” said Henry.
The Police Conference of New York is an umbrella organization of police unions across New York State. Its membership is 50,000 strong and includes active and retired officer groups.
