The following letter was sent to Royal Oak Patch by Det. Don Swiatkowski, president, Royal Oak Detectives Association:
The position of Oakland County Prosecutor mandates a person of honor, integrity, intellect, experience, and compassion for all those they are sworn to serve. This is a position for a noble and dedicated servant of justice and not a politician. Our current Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Copper is seeking re-election and fortunately for us all, she embodies all these qualities and more.
Jessica Cooper has been a successful and extremely dedicated attorney and Judge for over thirty years. She has been continually chosen by our fellow citizens to serve in district and circuit court judicial capacities, academic positions, and community based legal initiatives. Her reputation for being firm and fair as a circuit court Judge, and her unparalleled legal understanding led to her being elected to the most honorable Michigan Court of Appeals where she served with distinction.
As the Oakland County Prosecutor, Jessica Cooper has met the challenges head on of dealing with habitual drunk drivers, drug offenders, and the most violent criminals in Oakland County. Her unwavering pursuit of justice for victims in Oakland County and the continued protection of our citizens through community based programs, cohesive law enforcement procedures, and relationships forged with social service entities, is second to none. Her skilled staff of impressive Assistant Prosecutors has under her guidance, become an impressive body known for fairness and diligence. Her relationship and the relationship of her staff with local law enforcement agencies and district court personnel reflect great credit upon her determination to achieve justice.
I would submit to all Oakland County voters that Jessica Cooper is without a doubt, the only candidate who has proven by deed, that she deserves your support. Jessica Cooper is the only candidate with the judicial, legal, and law enforcement expertise to lead Oakland County into the future. On behalf of the law enforcement brotherhood that I represent, I proudly recommend that you support Prosecutor Jessica Cooper.
President, Royal Oak Detectives Association
