Current law enforcement leaders sign letter Urging voters to say no on Proposition 302
PHOENIX, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaking on behalf of law enforcement leaders across Arizona, two retired police chiefs in the Phoenix area will hold a news conference at Phoenix Day, the oldest continuously operating child development center in Arizona, on Monday, October 25 at 9:30 am to oppose Proposition 302, the ballot initiative that would terminate funding for Arizona's First Things First early childhood programs.
After reading to children at Phoenix Day and discussing the value of early care and education programs to law enforcement, the retired officials will release a new report by the national non-profit FIGHT CRIME: INVEST IN KIDS showing that investing in high-quality early care and education in Arizona can significantly reduce crime in the future. The officials also will release an open letter signed by more than a dozen current Arizona law enforcement leaders urging voters to vote no on Proposition 302.
