Today, Dr. Jasmeet Bains’ campaign for State Assembly announced that the California Police Chiefs Association has endorsed Dr. Bains.
Chief Christopher Catren, President of the California Police Chiefs Association, said: “The California Police Chiefs Association proudly endorses Dr. Jasmeet Bains for State Assembly. Dr. Bains has been a lifelong supporter for public safety and will be an unapologetic advocate for the resources we need to keep our neighborhoods safe. Voters can trust Dr. Bains to be the public safety champion they deserve. Dr. Bains has been a tireless champion and dedicated advocate working in partnership with police chiefs, high schools, and law enforcement in her district to provide awareness and education around fentanyl, and NARCAN trainings to help save lives. We look forward to working with her in the legislature to address the worsening fentanyl epidemic.”
Established in 1966, the California Police Chiefs Association represents municipal police chiefs and their agencies in California, providing public safety for more than 26 million Californians.
Dr. Jasmeet Bains said, “With fentanyl overdoses escalating by the day, we desperately need leadership that puts the health and safety of our families, children, and neighborhoods first. That’s why having the support of the California Police Chiefs Association means so much to me. In the Assembly, I will use my expertise in fighting fentanyl abuse to deliver the resources our law enforcement professionals need to save lives. I will continue working with law enforcement to make our communities safer and fight back against the epidemic of crime and addiction that is plaguing our neighborhoods.”
The California Police Chiefs Association’s endorsement comes fresh on the heels of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association throwing their strong support behind Dr. Bains’ candidacy for State Assembly. Since announcing her campaign, Dr. Bains has earned the support of an array of public safety organizations from across the Central Valley and state, including the Peace Officers Research Association of California, the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, the California Coalition of Statewide Law Enforcement Associations, and others.
