Tom Lackey receives support from California Police Chiefs Association
PALMDALE, CA- State Assemblyman and former California Highway Patrolman, Tom Lackey has received the endorsement of the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA).
Also naming Lackey the Legislator of the Year in 2015, the CPCA has represented California’s police chiefs and their departments for five decades. With more than 900 member organizations and 66,000 officers, they are the largest public safety association in the state.
“As an Assemblymember, Tom works closely with the California Police Chiefs Association and continuously makes decisions that protect both our officers and the residents he represents,” said Ken Corney, CPCA President. “Just as he did for nearly three decades as a member of the California Highway Patrol, Tom will continue to stand up for the members of his community by prioritizing their safety.”
A retired Sergeant with the CHP, Lackey was elected to the State Assembly in 2014. Since that time, he has been recognized as an authoritative voice on public safety issues, and has collaborated with local and statewide departments to develop creative solutions to new and growing problems.
The CPCA is not the only law enforcement organization that would like to see Lackey continue his work. He has also earned the endorsements of the Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs Association, the California Reserve Peace Officers Association, and the California Association of Highway Patrolmen.
Tom is seeking re-election to California’s 36th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lancaster, Palmdale, Rosamond, Mojave and California City.
