Baker Wins Award from Florida Police Benevolent Association
Senator Carey Baker, a candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture, has received the “Law Enforcement Officer Champion Award” from the Florida Police Benevolent Association (Florida PBA). The “Law Enforcement Officer Champion Award” is presented annually by the Florida PBA to the legislator whose record in office demonstrates “devotion to service, personal integrity, and professional values embodied by Florida’s law enforcement officers.”
According to Florida PBA President John Rivera, Baker was an “overwhelming choice” to receive this year’s honor.
“I am honored to be recognized by the Florida Police Benevolent Association as a ‘Law Enforcement Officer Champion,’ said Baker. “As a soldier in the Florida National Guard, I have a deep appreciation for the men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line to protect us all from those who would do us harm. The law enforcement officers who make up the ‘thin blue line’ are an asset to all Floridians, and I am proud to have earned their support.”
Florida Police Benevolent Association President John Rivera praised Senator Baker’s legislative record during the presentation of the Law Enforcement Officer Champion Award.
“Senator Carey Baker has spent his legislative career advocating for causes that preserve the benefits and protect the rights of Florida’s law enforcement officers and their families. This past legislative session, Senator Baker proved once again that he is a man of principle and a leader in public service,” said Rivera.
