Over the last four years, we’ve partnered with the New Castle Police on a number of public safety initiatives which have made a positive difference in our community. We support our police officers, and our officers know we appreciate their public service and professionalism.
We are proud to receive the endorsement of the Police Conference of New York, which represents the interests of 200 police associations with over 25,000 members, as well as the endorsement of the Affiliated Police Associations of Westchester County, which represents over 50 Westchester County police and other law enforcement benevolent associations with over 10,000 members. We are also proud to receive the endorsement of the Westchester Hispanic Law Enforcement Association. These endorsement are based on our record, not party affiliation.
