BEDFORD, NY – Nearly every law enforcement union in the State endorsed Westchester County Legislator Francis Corcoran today. Running for a second term, Corcoran continues to be a trusted ally to Westchester County and New York State law enforcement agencies.
The Westchester County Department of Public Safety PBA, the Police Conference of New York, and the New York State Troopers PBA have joined the Westchester County Correction Superior Officers Association, the Westchester County Hispanic Law Enforcement Association, and Affiliated Police Associations of Westchester County, which includes every local PBA, in putting their support behind Legislator Francis Corcoran.
Now more than ever, our police officers need the support and partnership of our elected officials. “The challenges facing members of the law enforcement community are greater than ever before, and we need individuals like Francis T. Corcoran in leadership positions to help law enforcement officers better serve the residents of New York State,” said Thomas Mungeer, President of the NYS Troopers PBA.
Corcoran said he has been a long-time friend to law enforcement. During his tenure as Bedford Town Councilman, Corcoran served the Bedford Police Department as a department liaison and as Police Commissioner on the Civilian Committee.
As a Westchester County Legislator, Corcoran has continued working to ensure that law enforcement has the proper support and resources to keep our communities safe. Corcoran’s record includes improving police training facilities in Valhalla, providing officers with body cameras, and increasing resources for victims of domestic abuse in Northern Westchester.
Working hand in hand with law enforcement, Legislator Corcoran has made the safety of Westchester residents a top priority. Westchester County PBA President Mike Hagan said, “Francis Corcoran’s record of accomplishment and commitment to the law enforcement community are of tremendous importance to the people he looks to serve in Westchester County.”
Officers in Westchester County and across New York State know that Francis Corcoran is a voice in government that they can trust. Corcoran takes these endorsements very seriously and is dedicated to being a continued ally to law enforcement. “I thank the leadership and all of the members of these agencies for placing their trust in me. I am committed to providing our brave and dedicated officers the support in government they need to keep both law enforcement and Westchester County residents safe,” he said.
