Nava Receives Statewide Public Safety Endorsement

The State Coalition of Probation Organizations supports his campaign for attorney general

Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara, announced Monday that the State Coalition of Probation Organizations has endorsed him for attorney general.

“On behalf of the 24 member organizations of SCOPO and the thousands of dedicated probation officers we represent throughout California, we believe that Assemblymember Nava is the most qualified to be the next attorney general,” said William Harper Jr., president of SCOPO. “Mr.Nava understands what it takes to keep all California families safe. He will be a great attorney general.”

“I am honored to have the support of California’s rank-and-file probation officers,” Nava said. “Probation officers have an important role in law enforcement. As California’s next attorney general, I look forward to working with all law enforcement to make our communities safer. California families want and deserve security in their homes, schools and communities.”

The organization assists probation officers at the state level through legislative action, education and coalition building, while offering leadership and support to its member organizations.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
