(Corona, CA) – Eric Linder has gained the endorsement of the Corona Police Officers Association, which praised Eric for his record of standing up for law enforcement and the victims of crime.

The Corona Police Officers Association endorsement adds to Linder’s already strong support from public safety groups and comes on the heels of the recent announcement of receiving the support of the Riverside Sheriffs’ Association and the Corona Firefighters Association.

“Eric Linder is the only candidate with a proven record of championing public safety and fighting to keep our community safe”, said Jason Perez, President of the Corona Police Officer’s Association.

“I am honored to have the support of the men and women of the Corona Police Officers Association.  Their dedication and hardwork keep our community safe. I am committed to making sure public safety is our top priority,” commented Eric Linder.

Linder has a strong record of leadership in his community.  Before being elected to the State Assembly, he co-founded the Corona Taxpayers Association. As a member of the State Assembly, Eric Linder made public safety a top priority by fighting for adequate funding for law enforcement and championing measures to help give these professionals the tools they need. He has authored legislation to enact tougher penalties on sex offenders and ensure that truly dangerous criminals are not released early due to overcrowding.  In 2014, Crime Victims United of California named Eric Linder Legislator of the Year for leading the fight to hold organizations that have turned a blind eye to sexual abuse accountable.
