Massachuestts Municipal Police Coalition Endorses Kevin O'Connor for United States Senate
The Massachusetts Municipal Police Coalition (MMPC) is a coalition of municipal police unions. The MMPC is formed and exists to facilitate the sharing of information, ideas, and resources among its member unions; to identify and work to achieve the important interests of municipal police officers; and to provide aid and assistance to member union's in the pursuit of their common goals in collective bargaining and in other forums. The MMPC represents more than 1,500 front-line police officers in communities throughout greater Boston. Our mission is to protect and advance the ability of public safety personnel to protect our citizenry.
The MMPC enthusiastically endorses Kevin O'Connor in his campaing for election to the United State Senate. Kevin has consistently supported men and women in law enforcement throughout his personal and professional life. He understands the challenges that exist today to keep our citizenry safe and the work of those on the front line that do so.
Kevin supports law enforcement as an important component of safe communities, and has said recent calls to defund the police are misguided. Kevin supports police departments in their efforts to be more inclusive and diverse and will support grant programs that encourage more training and support for officers on the street. “The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis horrified me. America can not tolerate that kind of brutality,” he said.
Kevin O’Connor supports qualified immunity for public safety personnel, as well as for other government employees.
The MMPC is confident that Kevin O'Connor support the collective bargaining process and working families of Massachusetts.
