Mesa Police Association endorses Tom Bearup for Pinal County Sheriff Election

Mr. Bearup,

This letter is to inform you of your endorsement for Pinal County Sheriff by the Mesa Police Association.   As you know, front line police officers should be able to perform their difficult jobs free from outside political influence.   I know that you will ensure the deputies of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will be treated fairly and free from the political influences that lead to corruption within an agency.  You have demonstrated throughout your lengthy career in law enforcement the ability to put an agency’s needs far above those of your own or a political party. We are confident with you as Pinal County Sheriff, the tax payers of Pinal County will become accustom to high quality police services from high quality law enforcement professionals. We urge you to continue give credit to the hard working deputies and civilians of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.  The Mesa Police Association looks forward to assisting you in any way possible in your time as Pinal County Sheriff.
