The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) facilitated a request from PLEA and the APA to meet with United States Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss our support of the tools provided to Law Enforcement and to our communities through SB 1070. The Attorney General listened to the concerns of front line Police Officers on the topic of SB 1070 and illegal immigration. The National Troopers Association and the National Sheriff’s Association stepped forward and communicated their support for SB 1070 to Eric Holder. Both PLEA and the APA appreciate the servant-leadership shown by Governor Jan Brewer and her willingness to combat the crime of illegal immigration and her overall steadfast support of rank and file Law Enforcement Officers.
