Contact: Maegan Leeton

 The following is a statement from Danny Diaz, President of the San Antonio Police Officers Association, on news that the City Clerk has certified the petition from defund-police group, ‘FIX SAPD’ 

 “We remain concerned by the lack of transparency on the funding of defund police group ‘FIX SAPD’ as reported in the Express-News on January 22, 2021. Nevertheless, SAPOA plans on working hard between now and election day to inform voters about how important collective bargaining (Chapter 174) is to recruiting top-notch police officers who will keep our neighborhoods safe and to ensuring the Police Chief and the City continue to have flexibility in hiring, promotions, discipline, and boosting diversity within the Department.”
