The Dallas Police Association (DPA) today endorsed Republican Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General, citing their confidence that the McKinney attorney is the most qualified candidate and will work closely with law enforcement to protect the families, schools and businesses of Texas.

“The Dallas Police Association enthusiastically endorses Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General,” said DPA President Ron Pinkston. “His commitment to the law and dedication to public safety will help law enforcement better protect communities across all of Texas.  Smart, aggressive and tireless – just the kind of leader we need to stand tough against violent crime.”

Founded in 1959, the Dallas Police Association is the oldest, largest and most diverse police employee organization in North Texas.

With the November election approaching, Senator Paxton’s support among law enforcement continues to grow.  Yesterday, Senator Paxton earned the endorsement of  the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT), the largest police officers’ union in Texas, the largest legal services provider in Texas specializing in representing law enforcement officers and the largest alliance of local police officers’ associations in Texas.

Senator Paxton has previously been endorsed by the Texas Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), representing over 4,000 officers in 42 lodges across the Lone Star State; the Houston Police Officers’ Union Political Action Committee (HPOU), Texas’ largest law enforcement organization; the Harris County Deputies’ Organization, the largest county deputies’ organization in Texas; and the Collin County Deputies Association, which endorsed Senator Paxton when he announced his candidacy.
