Utah AG Reyes endorsed by Utah police association for increased outreach and improved relations between local law enforcement and the communities they serve and protect.
As part of the endorsement letter, Dave Edwards, vice chairman of the Utah Fraternal Order of Police, acknowledged Attorney General Reyes for his work to diligently familiarize himself and the Attorney General’s office with Utah police training and the role Utah police serve as a unique group of public servants. “As you know, this is a difficult time for law enforcement given the challenges with public perception that continue to plague our profession in the wake of some of the tragedies that have developed nationwide,” Edwards noted in the letter.
Since Reyes took leadership, the Utah Attorney General’s office has become a leader in community outreach and de-escalation training for all agencies in the state, making all Utah AG office and agency personnel more sensitive and better equipped to deal with people of all languages, religions and cultures, along with those from the mental health, minority communities, homeless and the disability communities.
“I pray every night for the agents of my office to come home safely to their families. But too many men and women in uniform across the country never make it home,” said Reyes. “I am a proud supporter of these dedicated servants who put themselves in harm’s way each day to protect us. They deserve our respect and appreciation. I am honored and proud that the Utah Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed me in the Attorney General’s race.”
