The Mississippi Police Benevolent Association endorses Lt. Governor Tate Reeves for re-election

On September 10th, the Mississippi Police Benevolent Association held a political screening for those candidates running for various elected offices in the state of Mississippi. During the screening, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves demonstrated why his experience and values make him qualified to continue to represent the voters of Mississippi.  He also demonstrated that he is committed to making strong, effective law enforcement and the safety of the community a priority in his campaign.  That is why the Mississippi PBA is proud to announce their support by endorsing Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves for re-election.
Mississippi PBA President Chris Skinner said, "Through an understanding of issues important to our membership and the community and a willingness to be a working partner in our efforts to improve and promote the local and state law enforcement profession, Lt. Gov. Reeves has earned our support. The Mississippi Police Benevolent Association asks the citizens of Mississippi to support Tate Reeves in the upcoming election for Lt. Governor in November."
Under Lt. Gov. Reeves’ leadership, legislation passed to raise the death benefit for officers killed in the line of duty. He also has supported legislation to keep dangerous offenders behind bars and protect Mississippi children.
When asked about the support of the Mississippi PBA, Reeves said, I appreciate the Mississippi Police Benevolent Association for their support. They work hard to assist officers and their families. We are fortunate to live in a state where law enforcement has the strong support of the public, and I am honored to have the support of law enforcement.
Reeves’ knowledge and experience on issues that are important to law enforcement professionals make him a deserving recipient of this endorsement. The Mississippi Police Benevolent Association is proud to put their support behind Lt. Gov. Reeves and asks that the citizens of Mississippi do the same.  “A vote for Tate Reeves is a vote for the men and women of law enforcement and the citizens they serve," said Mississippi PBA Chris Skinner.
