Alexandria, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Senator Amy Klobuchar has been endorsed by the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association.

"Senator Klobuchar has always been a favorite with our membership because they know that she works tirelessly on issues important to them and she always makes public safety a top priority. She is seen as an aggressive advocate," said MPPOA Executive Director Dennis Flaherty.

Klobuchar is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has been a leader on law enforcement issues since entering the Senate.

She has secured funing for the Community-Oriented Policing Services program that helps local police departments keep more officers on the beat and reduce crime rates.
