ARIZONA COPS AND FIRE FIGHTERS SPEAK OUT:

SB 1609 HURTS PUBLIC SAFETY

PHOENIX – First responders from public safety and law enforcement associations across Arizona are voicing their aversion to SB 1609, a pension bill moving through the Legislature. The bill would force pay cuts upon police officers and fire fighters. It also would end for 15 to 20years the cost of living allowances public safety retirees depend on to pay their bills.

The average public safety employee in Arizona earns about $39,000 per year, according to estimates.

While they may wear different uniforms, members of the Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona (PFFA), the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police (AZFOP), the Arizona Police Association (APA), the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association (PPSLA) and the Arizona Conference of Police and Sheriffs (AZCOPS) stand unified in their goal: To protect the people of Arizona. And while taxpayers have long valued public safety, the same cannot be said of lawmakers who threaten to raise pension contributions and gut the middle-class benefits so many public safety retirees depend on to make ends meet.

The joint press conference will be held at: Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, 1700 W. Washington Street in Phoenix. It will begin at 2:00pm, Wednesday, March 23.

Available for media interviews:

Tim Hill, PFFA President

Jim Mann, Executive Director, AZFOP Arizona Labor Council

Jimmy Chavez, President, APA & AHPA

Mark Hafke, PPSLA President

Larry Lopez, AZCOPS President
