NEW: Mass Municipal Police Coalition Backs Sen. Brown
Thursday, September 27, 2012
“The MMPC is confident that Senator Brown will continue his support of the collective bargaining process and working families in Massachusetts,” said MPCC President Harry MacGilvray in a statement.
“We were particularly impressed with Senator Brown’s efforts to have the Secure Communities Initiative put in place in Massachusetts. Senator Brown has supported the men and women of law enforcement since he was a Selectman in Wrentham; our members sincerely hope he is there for us for a full six-year term in the Senate.”
Secure Communities is a measure designed to ensure that federal authorities share information from local law enforcement to locate and detain illegal aliens with criminal records. It was successfully implemented in the Commonwealth in May of this year.
“The interests of law enforcement have always been near and dear to my heart and I am honored to have the support of a respected organization such as the MMPC,” Brown said in a release.
“To have earned the confidence of your members means a great deal to me and I sincerely hope to be able to continue advocating for you in the U.S. Senate.”
The MMPC is a voluntary coalition of municipal police unions representing more than 1,500 police officers in communities around greater Boston.
