“The support of the Fraternal Order of Police is so important because I am committed to fighting criminals and protecting our families, our neighborhoods and our communities,” said Pam. “Florida’s sworn law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every single day to keep our state safe, and I am honored to be their choice as Florida's next Attorney General.”
“As an 18 year career prosecutor in the 13th Judicial Circuit and a strong advocate for justice, Pam has demonstrated a commitment to the citizens of Florida that exceeds politics as usual. We have seen firsthand her willingness to step up and fight for what is right,” said James W. Preston, President, Florida State FOP Lodge. “We are confident the experience, remarkable leadership, knowledge and work ethic she will bring to the office of Attorney General will serve our great state with integrity and honor. Florida deserves no less.”
“As a prosecutor for nearly two decades, I've worked closely with our law enforcement community to protect our state and its citizens,” said Pam. “As Florida’s Attorney General, public safety will continue to be one of my top priorities.”
Bondi spent 18 years serving the State Attorney’s Office in Hillsborough County, where she prosecuted criminals of every type, including kidnappers, murderers, gang members, drug traffickers and child predators.
The Florida FOP represents 20,000 professional law enforcement officers state-wide. The FOP is the oldest and largest organization in the nation working for law enforcement members.
