LAAPOA Endorses Joe Buscaino for L.A. Mayor

The Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association (LAAPOA) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Joe Buscaino in the 2022 Los Angeles mayoral race.

A Los Angeles city councilmember since 2012, Buscaino is a former LAPD sergeant who served the department for 15 years and is currently a reserve officer. He has focused his campaign on addressing homelessness and improving public safety, including increasing police budgets and hiring more officers. As a councilmember, he has been a leading supporter of providing unarmed L.A. City park rangers and security officers with the protection needed to defend themselves against the dangers of the job.

“Joe Buscaino is a strong advocate for public safety with a practical understanding of the realities of law enforcement and the urgent need for bold and decisive action to address skyrocketing crime,” LAAPOA President Marshall McClain said. “LAAPOA is proud to give him our endorsement and support in his campaign to become the next mayor of Los Angeles and make our city a safer place for all its residents.”
