FOP Targets Legislation To Abolish Sheriff's Office

The Fraternal Order of Police was distributing post-card fliers at City Hall this morning, asking people to push back against a move to abolish the Philadelphia Sheriff's Office.  Labeled "Extremely Important," the post cards said the legislation proposed by City Councilman Frank DiCicco "is a genuine threat and must be taken seriously."

The FOP, which represents deputy sheriffs, urges supporters to call DiCicco, Councilman Bill Green and Council President Anna Verna to argue against the legislation. "Express your concern of the elimination of the Sheriff's Office and all Deputy Sheriffs," the post card concludes. "This bill must die in committee.  Also, please have your family and friends call."
