Texas Municipal Police Association Endorses Greg Abbott
Calls Abbott “Tough As Nails On Crime”

AUSTIN – At their annual conference in Austin this past weekend, the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) announced their endorsement of Greg Abbott for Governor. TMPA is the state’s largest law enforcement association, representing over 19,000 peace officers and public safety employees.

Kevin Lawrence, Executive Director of TMPA, said “Greg Abbott is guided by a strong moral compass that is supported by his tireless devotion to the law and the people of Texas. He has shown a will to fight for our States’ rights, as well as the rights and liberties of all Texans.”

Lawrence further stated that during General Abbott’s tenure, “he has distinguished himself as a crime fighter, a strong voice for law enforcement, a staunch defender of the Constitution, and as tough as nails on crime. At the same time, General Abbott has been a champion for the employment rights of law enforcement officers. These are just a few of the many reasons Greg Abbott has won the support of law enforcement officers across Texas.”


“As Attorney General, I’ve had the privilege of working hand in hand with law enforcement to crack down on child predators, money laundering, corruption and a long list of other crimes,” said Attorney General Greg Abbott. “Although we may wear different uniforms, we share a common goal: protecting the people of Texas. TMPA was the first law enforcement organization to endorse my campaign for Attorney General, and once again, they’re the first organization to endorse my campaign for Governor. I’ve always been proud of my partnership with TMPA, and I’m thankful for their continued support.”
