Councilor Sarah Fox Endorsed By Law Enforcement Officers
Updated: Aug 29
Vancouver City Councilor Sarah Fox has received the endorsement from the Vancouver Police Officer’s Guild (VPOG). Seeking re-election, Councilor Fox will appear on the ballot in the General Election this November.
Councilor Fox was endorsed for her commitment to public safety. As a decorated veteran and mother, the safety of Vancouver neighborhoods is her top priority. Citing many reasons for endorsement, the VPOG applauded her work on the city’s task force to review and recommend improvements to the city’s policing practices, including the body-worn camera program. In addition to this work on the task force, Councilor Fox championed the funding for the equipment necessary to implement the body-worn camera program.
After receiving news of the endorsement, Councilor Fox stated:
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of our local police force. Our dedicated law enforcement officers work tirelessly – and oftentimes thanklessly – to keep our residents safe. I understand the importance of a strong partnership between law enforcement and the community they serve, and I am committed to fostering an environment of trust, transparency, and collaboration. Together, we can work towards building safer neighborhoods, promoting justice, and ensuring the well-being of every citizen."
