RICHMOND, VA – The Virginia Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Republican nominee for Lt. Governor Jill Vogel on Friday. The Virginia Fraternal Order of Police is the Commonwealth’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers.
“The Virginia Fraternal Order of Police is proud to endorse Senator Jill Vogel for Lieutenant Governor,” said Virginia Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Carroll. “As Virginia continues to face new and emerging threats, we need leaders in Richmond who will make public safety a top priority. Jill’s record of advocating for public safety speaks for itself. As a Senator, she has been a leader in standing up for law enforcement personnel. I look forward to working with her as Lt. Governor.”
“I am very grateful to the FOP for their confidence in me,” said Senator Vogel. “In Virginia’s Senate, I have consistently supported law enforcement, and was proud to take the lead this year in solving our law enforcement compensation crisis. As Lt. Governor, I will support law enforcement so Virginia can be safe and take the lead against gangs, human trafficking, and the opioid epidemic. It is such an honor to have their support in this race.”
