LE Groups Form Committee to Bolster Recruitment

September 16, 2009  | 

The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) and the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (ALADS) have formed a joint independent expenditure committee to bolster recruitment at Southern California law enforcement agencies.

In a joint statement, presidents Paul Weber of the LAPPL and Steve Remige of ALADS said the partnership is vital in the face of state and local governments' unprecedented budget crises.

"By lifting the voice of the law enforcement community in an effort to create greater public safety awareness, we hope to prevent disastrous cuts to police departments and programs and build a stronger bond with the residents we serve," said Weber.

"California has had a long and storied history of law enforcement," Remige stated. "Through this coalition we hope to both continue that proud tradition and help secure the necessary staffing, recruitment and retention of the highest quality peace officers to take us into the future."

The groups are two of California's largest law enforcement support organizations, representing a combined 18,000 officers and deputies of the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
