Assemblywoman Candidate, Janell Proctor, is extremely honored to receive the Pittsburg Police Officer’s Association Endorsement for District 14 encompassing Contra Costa, Solano and Napa counties.
“Several months ago, the Pittsburg Police Officer’s Association was introduced to Janell Proctor who indicated she was running for California State Assembly, District 14. Ms. Proctor showed empathy and compassion for the tough challenges currently facing public safety.
Unlike many current political candidates, Ms. Proctor stated that before she could formulate effective solutions to these complicated issues, she needed to fully understand a policing perspective. Ms. Proctor spent countless hours on multiple occasions engaging our association in dialogue for positive change. Ms. Proctor participated in ride-a-longs where she eagerly engaged our officers about important topics such as departmental and community relations, our current homelessness crisis, mental health awareness and de-escalation options.
In a time where many politicians are selling solutions absent of a sincere investment towards first fully understanding the problem, Ms. Proctor stood alone in her approach. The Pittsburg Police Officer’s Association firmly believes that through her hard work, genuine dialogue and a logical approach Janell Proctor is exactly the leadership that our community needs in these unprecedented times.
We are truly honored to provide our endorsement to her candidacy and fully support her compassionate approach towards supporting our community.”

  1. These cops with tattoos look very unprofessional. They should keep them covered like the sheriffs department.

    • Totally agree. Totally agree 100%. I heard on dispatch yesterday that fire station 53 (Oakley) needed the PD to help. Dispatch said no officers available. No wonder… they’re all out getting tattoos. What a disgrace!! No wonder they want to defund police. Idiots!!

  2. I highly recommend doing a ride along, Ipa. The community has no idea what these heroes do to keep us all safe. There is so much crime that is INVISIBLE to the public because of the phenomenal job they do. They are willing to put their lives on the line. Please pause for a moment to think about that before being petty and superficial. There is no guarantee that they will make it back to their loved ones each day. We don’t give that a second thought because they are doing their job of protecting us! Please inquire about a ride along or learning from their perspective before being so quick to criticize. Thank you Pittsburg POA, I appreciate all you do to protect us! You are all heroes in my book!!!
