Top Public Safety Groups Laud Senator Nielsen’s Legislative Work

Placer County, CA (MPG) - The California Police Chiefs Association and the California District Attorneys Association praised Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Red Bluff) for his strong public safety voting record. In their annual review of the Legislator’s votes, California’s top public safety organizations ranked Sen. Nielsen as one of the top defenders of the state’s law enforcement and advocate for criminal justice.

“There is no such thing as a "victimless crime." Our responsibility as legislators is to establish laws that hold criminals accountable and ensure justice for crime victims. Public safety is our most important obligation as elected leaders and I am grateful for the support of those on the front line who work every day to ensure safety and justice," said Senator Jim Nielsen.

Senator Nielsen supported all of the legislation that was important to the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA).

Representing over 330 active municipal police chiefs, CPCA’s members protect more than 26 million Californians. CPCA closely monitors the legislative process in light of lawmakers’ continuous efforts to undermine the criminal justice system and the alarming rise in violent crime.

Understanding the critical role of prosecutors, Senator Nielsen worked closely with district attorneys to ensure that laws passed allow criminals to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and that victims and their loved ones are participants in the criminal justice process. As a result of his efforts, Senator Nielsen received their top ranking.

Elected to the State Senate in January 2013, Senator Nielsen represents the Fourth Senate District, which includes the counties of Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Tehama and Yuba.
