San Luis Obispo Police Officers Association Backs Dan Dow for DA

San Luis Obispo – The San Luis Obispo Police Officers’ Association is the fifth major public safety organization this month to endorse District Attorney Dan Dow’s re-election campaign. Earlier in the month Dow received the support of the Paso Robles POA, Arroyo Grande POA, the Atascadero POA, and the San Luis Obispo Deputy District Attorneys.

The San Luis Obispo POA issued the following statement about their endorsement of District Attorney Dow: “Dan Dow has been an incredibly effective and trustworthy District Attorney.  We know he is committed to working collaboratively with our agency and law enforcement throughout the County to keep San Luis Obispo safe.  We encourage everyone to join us in supporting Dan Dow’s re-election.”

During Dow’s tenure as DA, Dow and his team of Deputy District Attorneys have successfully achieved justice for thousands of crime victims and their families. San Luis Obispo County continues to maintain its status as one of the safest counties in California. Dow maintains that working collaboratively with the County’s police agencies is an important ingredient in his office’s success.

Dow started San Luis Obispo County’s Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force that has led to multiple cases investigated, charged, and jury trial convictions with life sentences for predators trafficking minors for commercial sexual exploitation.  Dow has worked proactively with police agencies around the county on this important task force.

“I’m overwhelmed by the strong showing of support from so many public safety associations this month. I greatly appreciate their confidence and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with them to keep San Luis Obispo County safe,” noted Dow.

Dow was originally elected District Attorney in 2014. He is a proven prosecutor with a distinguished career that focused on prosecuting domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse crimes, including homicide where he seeks to bring justice for victims of particularly devastating crimes. Dow is also Army veteran and a bronze star recipient who served in Iraq, Korea and Kosovo.

Dan and his wife Wendy, a local small business owner and reading instructor, have two school aged children. To learn more about Dan Dow and his campaign, visit:
