FOP of Ohio Endorses Steve Dettelbach for Attorney General

CLEVELAND — TODAY, the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) of Ohio announced its official endorsement of Democratic nominee Steve Dettelbach in his race to become Ohio’s next Attorney General.

Steve Dettelbach released the following statement upon learning he has the Ohio FOP’s endorsement:

“I am beyond grateful to have the endorsement and support of the FOP. Men and women in law enforcement work day in and day out to keep each and every one of us safe. It is much more than a job — it is a sacrifice and a vocation that requires tremendous commitment, loyalty, and grit.
“Ohio deserves an Attorney General who will make sure our police have the support and resources they need to protect Ohio. That’s why I rolled out a public safety plan that will do just that. Supporting police isn’t just the right thing to do — it makes Ohio safer. As Ohio’s next AG, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with our police to make sure they have the tools they need to keep Ohio safe.
“Throughout my two decades as a federal prosecutor I worked hand-in-hand with law enforcement. I know how difficult their jobs can be and how important they are. To have the support of police is an honor tough to put into words. I am looking forward to working with newly-elected FOP President Gary Wolske, FOP leadership and the hardworking men and women in law enforcement across the state to keep Ohio safe.”


Steve Dettelbach, the Democratic candidate for Ohio Attorney General, is a former United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio and career federal prosecutor.
