ENDORSEMENT: Fraternal Order of Police Endorses Brian Fitzpatrick for Congress

Brian Fitzpatrick, former FBI Supervisory Special Agent and current candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania’s Eighth District, has been endorsed by the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police – including Bucks Co. Lodge #53 and Montgomery Co. Lodge #14. The announcement, made Thursday at the Bucks Co. FOP Lodge #53 in Wycombe, highlighted Fitzpatrick’s focus on addressing the region’s opioid epidemic and protecting against terrorism. 
“As a member of the law enforcement community – both as a prosecutor and a FBI agent – I know first-hand the vital importance our police play in keeping our communities safe and appreciate the selfless service they carry out each day,” said Fitzpatrick. “I’m running for Congress because I believe every American family deserves security and opportunity. In townships and boroughs across our district, it’s our local law enforcement officers who work tirelessly to protect those rights. To receive the support of thousands of Bucks and Montgomery county’s finest is humbling.” 
The Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police represents nearly 40,000 law enforcement members from across the Commonwealth. 
“As a former FBI Special Agent, as well as serving as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, Brian Fitzpatrick has proven his dedication to keeping the citizens of our state and country safe. Brian’s extensive background in law enforcement and expertise has proven that he is committed to serving the people of his district and our country,” said Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police President Les Neri.“Brian’s promise to give law enforcement the tools necessary to protect its citizens, desire to protect our borders and vision of everyone working as a team for the good of all Americans are the reasons we stand with great pride in support of Brian Fitzpatrick for Congress.” 
For nearly a decade and a half, Fitzpatrick served as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation where his focus was fighting political corruption and supporting global counter-terrorism efforts. He served as the National Director for the FBI’s Campaign Finance and Election Crimes Enforcement Program, as well as a national supervisor for the FBI’s Political Corruption Unit where he traveled the world to promote democracy and was recognized as an expert in restoring integrity to governmental institutions. For his work, Fitzpatrick was an inaugural recipient of the FBI Director’s Leadership Award. Fitzpatrick also served as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, prosecuting violent drug and gun offenders to stem the tide of abuse and violence.
Fitzpatrick has made security a keystone issue of his campaign for Congress and has been an outspoken advocate for ensuring federal, state and local law enforcement has all the tools necessary to keep us safe. With experience as a former national security expert, he has identified eight key steps toward protecting Bucks and Montgomery county families.
