WEST SACRAMENTO – On February 5, 2024, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Chief Counsel Kasey Clark, along with Association of California Wildlife Officers (ACWO) President Trevor Pell and ACWO Director Nathan Coyle, met with eight lateral officers who are beginning an eight-week academy at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in West Sacramento.
“Today was an opportunity for ACWO to treat the officers to lunch and introduce the benefits and services of ACWO and CSLEA union membership,” said Pell. “It was a pleasure to meet everyone and to discuss the importance of having access to CSLEA’s legal defense fund should an officer be involved in a critical incident. No officer should be without this safety net. In addition, only through CSLEA membership can these officers access PORAC’s sought-after health plan.”
All eight lateral officers recognized the value and importance of union membership and chose to become a part of the organization that represents Bargaining Unit 7 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California.
“We welcome our newest members to CSLEA, to their new careers at CDFW, wish them the best in the academy, and stand ready to assist them,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona
