Sandy Hamilton Supports Law Enforcement

Rep. Sandy Hamilton, Candidate for State Senate in the 48th District releases statement on the SAFE-T Act and law enforcement:

“The Safe-T Act, backed by JB Pritzker and Doris Turner, will make our communities less safe by putting dangerous and violent criminals back on the streets after they’ve been arrested. This slap-on-the-wrist behavior for serious crimes and offenses puts a big strain on our already understaffed police departments. While the Springfield Police Department has just hired a new freshman class of police officers, they still have over 15 vacancies yet to fill, and with each year they’re seeing fewer individuals apply for open positions. I’m proud to stand with our local law enforcement and as your Senator, I will be sure to vote to repeal the Safe-T Act to restore real safety to our communities.”
