On June 29, 2020, PLEA President Britt London sent a letter to Mayor Kate Gallego and the Phoenix City Council urging them to take a public stance and support Phoenix Police Officers.
While we received statements of support from Councilwoman Thelda Williams, Councilman Jim Waring, Councilwoman Deb Stark, Councilman Michael Nowakowski, and Councilman Sal DiCiccio, the silence and lack of response from Mayor Kate Gallego, Vice Mayor Betty Guardado, Councilmember Carlos Carcia, and Councilmember Laura Pastor is deafening.
Mayor Gallego has a personal security detail composed of Phoenix Police Officers, and other officers provide security for City Hall, where the Council maintains their offices, and the City Council Chambers, where the Council normally meets to conduct business.
PLEA represents over 2500 rank and file Phoenix Police Officers and Detectives who work hard ensure the safety and security of every community within Phoenix, not select council districts or neighborhoods.
