"We share many of the same concerns about law enforcement issues and special agent positions within the Department of Justice." - CSLEA President Alan Barcelona
SACRAMENTO - On November 6, 2012 California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona and Association of Special Agents-DOJ President Al Cardwood met with Attorney General Kamala Harris and DOJ Division of Law Enforcement Director Larry Wallace to discuss law enforcement and labor issues.
"We had a very thoughtful meeting about issues that are important to the Attorney General and issues that are important to our DOJ special agents, ASA-DOJ and CSLEA," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "We thanked the Attorney General for working hard to save jobs at DOJ and for bringing back the top-cop talent that was let go during the massive economic crunch."
Attorney General Harris has made the fight against human trafficking and transnational gangs a priority within the Department of Justice, two criminal elements that threaten the safety and well-being of Californians, young and old. Harris thanked CSLEA for supporting her in those efforts and for a trusting work relationship.
"It is an absolute pleasure to work with someone so passionate about protecting Californians from harm," said Barcelona. "That's in the very core of our special agents, as well, and we want to be sure they have the tools and the agent power to get the job done."
