LAS VEGAS — Today, Congresswoman Susie Lee (NV-03) announced that she received the endorsement of the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers (NAPSO) and the Nevada Law Enforcement Coalition (NLEC), which represents nearly 20 separate associations of law enforcement and other public safety officers throughout Nevada. “Our men and women in uniform risk their lives every day to protect our communities, and it is one of my top priorities to ensure that they have the funding and resources they need to keep us safe,” said Rep. Lee. “I’m proud to have the endorsement of the Nevada
Association of Public Safety Officers and the Nevada Law Enforcement Coalition, and I will keep fighting for the interests of our law enforcement officers in Congress.”
“The Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers and the Nevada Law Enforcement Coalition are proud to endorse Congresswoman Susie Lee.
