State Senator Michael McLachlan (R-24) has received the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association’s (CPCA) Annual Legislative Award.

At the CPCA’s December 16th winter meeting, Senator McLachlan, Representative Penny Bacchiochi (R-52), Representative Gerald Fox, III (D-146) and Representative William Tong (D-147) were all honored for their support of law enforcement. Each lawmaker was presented with the award for their legislative efforts in areas such as criminal justice, domestic violence, gun trafficking and unfunded mandates.

“I am honored to receive this award,” said Senator McLachlan. “The Connecticut Police Chiefs Association is such a great organization committed to ensuring the public’s safety as well as improving our quality of life. As a legislator I share the same goals and look forward to continuing my efforts to enhance our state’s law enforcement.”

The Connecticut Police Chiefs Association, founded in 1934, is made up of 600 members who all hold a common goal of increasing the understanding of the role of the police in the criminal justice system and fostering improvements in law enforcement education, practice and research.
