DiFiore_Janet Dobbs Ferry, NY — In an unanimous vote, the Westchester County Chiefs of Police Association, for only the second time in its history, has endorsed a candidate for elected office; the Association has endorsed District Attorney Janet DiFiore for re-election as Westchester County District Attorney.

The first time the Association endorsed a candidate for elected office was four years ago, when it endorsed then-Judge Janet DiFiore for District Attorney.

The Westchester County Chiefs of Police Association is comprised of law enforcement executives: commissioners and chiefs of police from forty-four local and state police agencies in Westchester County. 

District Attorney DiFiore received this year’s endorsement in recognition of “[her] nuts and bolts understanding of police operations and the unique aspects of prosecuting crimes in Westchester County”, said Association President Chief Joseph Benefico of the Pelham Police Department. “Your accomplishments in the first term of office validate our previous endorsement and warrant this one. Not only have you created many worthy crime solving and crime prevention programs, you have unfailingly displayed a fair, resolute and thorough approach to criminal prosecution.”

“Over the past three and a half years as District Attorney, I have worked very hard to enhance public safety by working closely with community and law enforcement partners, ensuring fairness and integrity in criminal prosecutions. improving crime fighting intelligence, and educating the public on crime prevention. These proactive strategies define the role of a modern prosecutor,” said District Attorney Janet DiFiore after accepting the Association’s endorsement. “To be recognized and acknowledged for this work by the professionals you work with every day is an honor and an affirmation of all that we have worked to accomplish.” 

The endorsement was made at the Half Moon Bay restaurant in Dobbs Ferry.

  1. I’m sorry I left him out. Jonathan Lovett is a fat bag or hot air, and no one gives him much credence. He dresses up bums in suits and parades them in front of any news media that will listen.
    Interestingly enough News 12 (employer of Michael Edelman, personaly injury lawyer)is usually the only news media that will give Lovett any air time. That is why I switched to Verizon. They are half the price of Optimum and offer more channels, superior phone and internet and best of all …… NO NEWS 12 ! ! ! ! !

  2. Tony Castro accepted the endorsement of Sam Zherka.
    So he will lose.
    Schorr wants the endorsement of Sam Zherka.
    So he will lose.

  3. ok, Mike, you win, I concede………

  5. Strip CLub Sam is SHOCKED, SHOCKED to learn that there are frivilious lawsuits going on here….
    “Your losings , sir”
    “Thank you.”

  6. you sir are a man with ideas that have no
    basis in reality…personal injury attorneys
    have a job to do…just like any other
    branch of the law…they get compensation
    for people who are severely injured by
    someone else…if a member of your family
    (god forbid) had an accident and lost a
    leg you would no doubt be the first looking
    for justice….all of which by the way has
    nothing to do with the democratic primary
    your reasoning is equivalent to my son
    when he was in middle school..you have
    very little knowledge of the real world
    and harbor some grudge against lawyers
    who for the most part do their jobs and
    advocate for thier clients..but you remain
    silent on the lawyer jonathan lovett hired
    by zherka to sue the county and others
    alleging the most outrageous allegations
    and if by chance tony castro were to ever win..(also god forbid) you can count on
    zherka lovett and blassberg to take the
    grand jury to places its never been before
    in terms of investigating political enemies.
    think about that

  7. Who’s Shakespear?? Wheo’s Henry VIII??
    I just don’t like bloodsucking ambulance chasing leaches.
    Lawyers are the biggest criminals we have in our society today.
    Google the name Paul Bergrin and see what you come up with.
    And we have no shortage of local lawyers who have gone to federal prison for tax evasion, or been caught on federal wire taps planning to plant illegal listening devices etc.
    Then you have a large percentage of lawyers (usually the abulance chasing crowd) who may not be full blown criminals, but at the very best are totally morally corrupt

  8. difiore has one of the highest violent
    felony conviction rates in new york.that
    is according to the state …that means she
    does not plead felonies down to misdemeanors
    and she does not let criminals out of jail
    she can’t..once they are in its out of her
    hands…you have no idea about her budget
    so stop accusing her of fiscally anything..
    you are a shill for either castro or
    schorr neither of whom plays fair….just
    read the guardian…or listen to zherka
    and blassberg castro’s number one supporters
    you are simply mouthing what you are told
    and have no direct knowlege of anything…
    but having said that castro will take the
    biggest electoral beating in the history
    of westchester primaries….and schorr will
    get no more than 30% of the total vote in
    november

  9. It may be of interest to the less educated (in this case the barely educated at all) that the saying about first killing all the lawyers comes from Shakespeare’s Henry VI.
    Of course the phrase in the play referred to killing all the lawyers to eliminate the impediment to law and independent thinking. It was the respect of lawyers and their role in society that was being jeered at.
    Sound like a plan for today if you are on the side of crime, criminals and evil in my opinion.
    Of course those who favor evil support the elimination of lawyers and their role in society. I think evil people oppose the current DA because she stands for law enforcement, for decency and for the tenants of a democratic society.
    Happily the voters of Westchester agree with me and the proof will come soon and twice. Then the crying will begin anew.

  10. Strip Club Sam supports Tony Castro. That is “reason-one” why Tony Castro is going to lose so big.
    Second, the poster above spells like a stripper.

  11. “Janet DiFiore is the best DA that Westchester has ever had. She is a woman of integrity, aggressively prosecutes offenders, looks out for the victims, watches the bottom line fiscally, and deserves the support of all law abiding Westchester residents.”
    NOT ONE THING IN THAT POST WAS TRUE!
    1. If she had any integrity she would not have switched parties
    2. She is scared to prosecute anyone that’s why she offers these people such sweet deals
    3.fiscally she is a joke
    4. Why would any law abiding citizen support a DA who lets all these criminals out, please felonies down to misdemeanors on a daily basis, and has no interest in putting anyone in prison?????

  12. integrity has nothing to do with party
    when you have to go hat and hand to the
    leader of the ind party cavalo or else
    wind up losing an election just because
    you didn’t give him what he demanded after
    the last election…integrity has everything
    to do with how you discharge you responsibilities as chief law enforcement
    officer..just remember there is no republican or democratic way to fight crime
    frank hogan and bob morganthau were democratic da’s…so was burton roberts
    and they were all great da’s….it has
    nothing to do with party and everything
    to do with competence..and tony castro
    is the most unqualified candidate ever
    to seek the office

  13. I don’t think ANY of the candidates are worth a vote. Schorr must be nuts if he has not rejected Zherka outright. We already know Castro is going nowhere.
    That leaves DiFiore as the pick of a basically lousy litter.

  14. Janet DiFiore is the best DA that Westchester has ever had. She is a woman of integrity, aggressively prosecutes offenders, looks out for the victims, watches the bottom line fiscally, and deserves the support of all law abiding Westchester residents.

  15. this was a politically motivated endorsement more than likely driven by that fool kapica … difiore is more of a cop hater than pirro and their hate for the police and their hope to hang a cop is getting in the way of proper proscution in westchester county

  16. endorsements don’t determine elections
    voters do…and how do you expect dan
    schor to win with only one line..his
    own republican leader screwed him…
    by doing business with cavalo..cavalo
    gave the IND line to castro..not to schorr..
    and the conservative line went to difiore
    not to schorr..shorr cannot win…its a mathmatical impossibility…and now with his
    hopping on board the zherka groupie bandwagon he will have a lot of explaining to do since zherka’s newspaper is blatently
    anti cop..read it some times..read about
    the murder of officer ridley..read about
    the jury in the simoes case that “didnt
    do the right thing”…that is what schorr
    is now associating himself with…its
    ugly and its going to get uglier as it
    becomes clear that cavalo, colety and
    zherka have banded together to try to
    unseat an incumbant da for their own purposes…and that is exactly what is
    going to be stopped

  17. All of the Police hate her, Dan Schorr is getting all of the police endorsements. She is a member of the Chiefs Assoc, thats why they endorsed her.
    Dan Schorr is pro-police, and because of this will win.

  18. As a life-long Republican, in November, I shall cast my vote for Janet DiFiore. It’s no wonder she has received the endorsement of the Westchester County Chiefs of Police Association. She has confidently and responsibly discharged her duties as DA with integrity and fairness.

  19. Janet DiFiore is the best DA that Westchester has ever had. She is a woman of integrity, aggressively prosecutes offenders, looks out for the victims, watches the bottom line fiscally, and deserves the support of all law abiding Westchester residents.

  20. Congrats on the endorsement Ms. DiFiore and now go do the right, boldest, thing–reopen the Sharon Enea mystery slaying case.
