MORRISTOWN, NJ - Today, several highly respected members of New Hampshire's law enforcement community launched a coalition to build further support among public safety officials for Christie's Presidential campaign.

He will always stand up and defend our officers, who put their lives on the line to protect our communities. I am proud to support a governor who has a solid record working with the men and women on the front lines of public safety to reduce crime, defend law and order, and ensure equal justice under the law."

Governor Christie worked with the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and the intelligence community to prosecute terrorists who were attempting to attack our nation. In these dangerous times, we need a president who understands the threats we face in the ongoing war on terror."
