Sen. Mark Kelly shakes hands with Frank Alanis, Vice President of the Pinal County Law Enforcement Association and Chief of the Superior Police Department

 

  Last week, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly visited the Pinal County Emergency Operations Center which will receive $187,000 from this year’s government funding bill. The Kelly-secured funding will support technology upgrades at the Emergency Operations Center, which will enhance operational coordination, communication, and public safety efforts throughout the county.

  During his visit, Kelly toured the facility and met with the county’s emergency management team and local officials to discuss how the funding will support public safety and law enforcement. Kelly was joined by the Chairman of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors Jeffrey McClure, Pinal County Emergency Manager Chuck Kmet, Pinal County Attorney Kent Volkmer, and Town of Superior Chief of Police Frank Alanis.

  Kelly, a former EMT and the son of two police officers, has continued to work in the Senate to deliver the federal funding and resources first responders and law enforcement need to keep Arizonans safe. Earlier this year, Kelly helped secure over $4.4 million in this year’s government funding bill for police departments and public safety efforts in cities and towns across Arizona.
