Florida Police Chiefs Association Endorses Denise
Zolfo Springs, Fla.– Republican Candidate for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Services Denise Grimsley today announced the Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) has endorsed her campaign. Grimsley, who has already received the backing of the Florida State Fraternal Order of Police, Florida Professional Firefighters and more than 35 Florida sheriffs, continues to gain widespread support from Florida law enforcement and first responders with this latest endorsement.
“We are confident Denise Grimsley is the best candidate to promote and implement policy that gives law enforcement the ability to enhance public safety and security through the right resources and cooperation,” said Amy Mercer, executive director of the FPCA. “Her focus on consumer protection is second to none, and, if elected, we look forward to working with her to stop criminals who seek to defraud Floridians, and harm and disrupt their everyday lives through the use of skimmers at the gas station pump and other deceptive practices.”
“I sincerely thank the FPCA for their endorsement,” said Grimsley. “Since Day One, our campaign has made a commitment to meet with law enforcement as we travel the state, because it is vitally important that the next Florida Commissioner of Agriculture be ready to work hand in glove with law enforcement the moment they take office, in order to confront the barrage of scams and frauds that Floridians face on a daily basis. And, as Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture and Chief Consumer Advocate, I have a plan in place aimed at fighting fraud and scams that uniquely target our state’s most vulnerable, and I am prepared to work with any entity, particularly law enforcement, to implement it and put criminals behind bars where they belong.”
