Public Safety Record Earns Honors For Runner
Public safety is government’s “number one role.”
Senator George Runner (R-Antelope Valley) was recognized for his work and commitment to improving public safety for California families and their children by the Chief Probation Officers of California and the law enforcement-supported organization Fight Crime: Invest in Kids.
Runner was named 2007 Legislator of the Year by the Chief Probation Officers of California for his efforts to increase public safety.
“Senator Runner has been a tireless advocate for public safety and a great supporter of adult probation services. We applaud his focus on public safety strategies that are proven to work and are glad to have him in the Legislature,” said Chief Kim Barrett, President of the Chief Probation Officers of California.
Runner also received the Legislative Champion Award by Fight Crime: Invest in Kids. This organization is an anti-crime organization of more than 300 sheriffs, police chiefs, district attorneys and victims of violence dedicated to reducing crime by supporting efforts to help prevent children from becoming involved in crime.
“I am honored to receive such prestigious awards,” said Senator Runner. “Public safety is the number one role of government and I will continue my efforts to increase safety for our families and children.”
