Joe Dujmic's campaign for State Assembly has announced they have receievd the endorsement of the Suffolk County Probation Officers Association.
Probation Officers supervise approximately 14,000 individuals in the community; including juvenile, misdemeanor, and felony offenders. In addition, they conduct about 8,000 investigations annually to assist the courts in determining sentence. The members monitor approximately 400 registered sex offenders, play an integral role in Suffolk's anti-gang initiatives, and perform 24 hour monitoring of offenders through electronic monitoring and GPS technology.
In response to the endorsement, Mr. Dujmic stated: "I would like to thank the Suffolk County Probation Officers Association for their hard work and dedication to our community. These men and women protect our communities and children from falling prey to some of the worst sex offenders in Suffolk County. I look forward to working with these amazing individuals in continuing to protect the children and families of Suffolk County."
The endorsement is one of several key law enforcement endorsements that the Dujmic campaign has recieved over the last few weeks. Aside from the Probation Officers Association, Mr. Dujmic has been endorsed by the New York State Troopers PBA; the Bridge & Tunnel Benevolent Association; and the New York City Correction Officers' Benevolent Association.
