The Kemp for Governor campaign announced Monday that the Police Benevolent Association of Georgia is backing Kemp in his re-election campaign.


The Police Benevolent Association of Georgia (PBA) is a Division of the Southern States Police Benevolent Association.

The Southern States Benevolent Association is regarded as “The Voice for Law Enforcement Officers,” as it is composed of more than 60,000 law enforcement officers employed by federal, state, county and municipal governments. The organization offers legal, disciplinary, and other representation to officers who are members. The association is funded by membership dues of officers and citizen contributions.

“Governor Kemp has shown great leadership in our state. In these difficult times, he has not made decisions based on political correctness, but on what was right for businesses and citizens to safely move forward in Georgia,” said Police Benevolent Association of Georgia President Joe Naia. “When others were painting law enforcement as evil, our governor remained committed to the law enforcement community. The PBA of Georgia is honored to give our endorsement for a second term.”

“Marty, the girls, and I are forever grateful to the law enforcement professionals that continue to put their lives on the line to protect and serve everyday Georgians. There’s not a day that goes by where we don’t pray for these men and women in uniform as they stand in the gap to keep our fellow citizens safe,” said Governor Kemp. “I’m honored to have the support of the Police Benevolent Association of Georgia in this election, and I will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with law enforcement across our state to build a safer, stronger Georgia.”
