Political endorsements

Dear Editor:In local elections, the Downey Police Department does not, and will not, endorse any particular candidate. If any member of the public has viewed campaign material or heard political statements that imply an endorsement by the police department, be aware that this is not the case. We believe it is the role of the citizenry to select the candidate whom they wish to represent them, while the police department maintains neutrality in the political process. We will always strive to serve our community in a fair and impartial manner. -- Rick Esteves, Chief of Police Downey Police Department
