Elk Grove Council Members Detrick and Suen Defend Elk Grove POA
Community Should be Confident in Local Police

Elk Grove Council Members Suen and Detrick joined together today to demonstrate their complete confidence in the Elk Grove Police Department and their POA.
On Friday Vice Mayor and candidate for Mayor Steve Ly accused the Elk Grove Police Officers Association of engaging in “backroom deals” when the POA voted unanimously to support one of Ly’s opponents in the upcoming election for Mayor.
“With everything that is happening across our country right now regarding law enforcement officers, comments like this undermine the trust of the community in the police force,” said Detrick. “This is not good for our community.”
“I have complete faith in the Elk Grove Police Officers Association,” said Suen.  “I want to assure the people of Elk Grove that we have law enforcement professionals that are protecting their homes, businesses and families 24 hours of every day.”
Both men agreed that it is important the comments made in the election process don’t leak over to cause a lack of confidence in our local public safety infrastructure.
The Elk Grove Police Department and their officers are widely considered the best in the region.  They have over 200 professionals that respond to more than 50,000 calls for service each year.
