The Missouri Fraternal Order of Police Board of Trustees' today unanimously endorsed State Senator Chris Koster for Attorney General.
"The endorsement resulted from your practical experience in law enforcement; your well established concern for the men and women serving the citizens as public safety professionals; and, your commitment to the welfare of all Missourians," said FOP President Kevin Ahlbrand.
"I am honored to receive the endorsement from the state’s police," said Koster. "Law enforcement is the top job of Missouri's Attorney General and I am proud to have the support of those who know law enforcement the best."
Ahlbrand said Koster "consistently demonstrated a personal understanding of the issues facing those that have sworn to serve and protect the citizens of Missouri."
"With the help of the FOP, I want to do what I have always done - - reach out, work together and lead Missouri forward," said Koster.
Koster's campaign is calling the FOP announcement "one of the most important endorsements in the race for Attorney General." The group represents more than 5,000 law enforcement professionals throughout the state.
