Saratoga: Today, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election to Congress. The Fraternal Order of Police represents over 355,000 members across the country in over 2,100 lodges, and represents thousands of retired and active duty police officers in the North Country. It remains the largest professional police organization in the country and its goal is to advocate for the rights of law enforcement officers, support the Constitution, support law and order, and prioritize the safety and rights of law enforcement.

“I’m honored to be endorsed by the New York State Fraternal Order of Police,” said Stefanik. “I am a firm and proud supporter of our law enforcement community in the North Country and throughout our nation. Especially now, supporting law enforcement is critical amid the rioting and attacks on police officers across the country. The Fraternal Order of Police is an incredibly important organization that strives to advocate for the rights and safety of our police officers and support law and order in our communities, and I’m proud to partner with them. I’m grateful for their support and look forward to continuing my work with them in my next term in Congress. Unlike my opponent, who refuses to publicly condemn attacks on police officers, I will always Back the Blue.”

“On behalf of the New York State Fraternal Order of Police, I’m proud to announce our endorsement of Congresswoman Elise Stefanik,” said Washington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy. “She is the right choice for the North Country because she supports the rights of law enforcement officers and has our backs. Congresswoman Stefanik works hard in Congress on legislation that prioritizes our rights and safety. We know that she is a strong supporter of law and order, and she has our full support.
