Sen. Richardville receives POAM Legislator of the Year award
LANSING - Sen. Randy Richardville recently received the 2007 Legislator of the Year award from the Police Officers Association of Michigan at its annual convention in Grand Rapids.
"We are honored to recognize Sen. Richardville with the POAM legislator of the year award because of the leadership he offered as a state representative and now as president pro tempore of the Senate," said Ken Grabowksi, the legislative director for POAM. "Sen. Richardville has sponsored and supported many important law enforcement measures. We appreciate the assistance he has provided to our association."
POAM is a full-service labor organization formed to meet the needs of all law enforcement officers. The POAM provides all labor-related services, from negotiations, grievance processing, arbitration and legal representation.
"It is critical for Michigan to have sound law enforcement practices," said Richardville, R-Monroe. "That is why I have actively worked with the POAM members from my district and across the state. I am truly honored to receive this award from these brave men and women."
This marks the third statewide law enforcement award Richardville has received since entering the Legislature. He has previously been recognized by the Deputy Sheriff's Association of Michigan and the Michigan Sheriff's Association for his work on behalf of the individuals in law enforcement.
