Primary Endorsements for 2016

The San Antonio Police Officers Association is proud to announce their 2016 primary endorsements. We are thankful for every candidate who took the time to sit down and talk with our team. Our endorsement process encompasses a thorough interview geared towards identifying the candidates who best understand the role of law enforcement officials in our community.

As a family, SAPOA endorsed those candidates who offered an open door policy and approach to public safety that values and recognizes the unique sacrifice our first responders play in San Antonio. Our endorsement is a partnership and we look forward to supporting our endorsed candidates as they seek election in March.
