Today, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) announced its support for Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch. Ms. Lynch is currently serving a commendable second tour of duty as the United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York. FLEOA stands behind her proven leadership and her support for those who investigate and enforce the federal statutes.
In 2011, Ms. Lynch was selected as the FLEOA Foundation's Law Enforcement Honoree of the Year. Her accomplishments and her leadership continue to resonate in the law enforcement community, and she possesses the requisite institutional knowledge that is required of the position of Attorney General, according to the association. After the President announced his nomination of Ms. Lynch, FLEOA National President Jon Adler stated, "In light of the turbulent climate confronting law enforcement, we need a strong leader like U.S. Attorney Lynch to bring a calm, well‐informed perspective to the Attorney General position. Knowing U.S. Attorney Lynch's fine character and judicial talents, I foresee her balancing her title with equal strength both as our nation's lead Attorney and as our legal General."
The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (www.fleoa.org) is the largest nonprofit, nonpartisan professional association that exclusively represents over 26,000 active and retired federal law enforcement officers from over 65 Agencies.
