DUNKIRK – The Republican candidate for Chautauqua County District Attorney has been endorsed by the Dunkirk Police Benevolent Association.







In making the endorsement, the PBA says candidate Jason Schmidt’s “matter of fact and hopeful approach” to community problems and needs is what the group believes would serve the community best.

The group also noted that Schmidt’s “Victims First” platform is “critical to creating a safe community” where both citizens and law enforcement can maintain a relationship of “trust and understanding.”







Schmidt has been working in the criminal justice system for more than 15 years in and around Chautauqua County.

He was also involved in the first federal trial in the Western District of New York following the COVID-19 shutdown.













“I cut my teeth as a prosecutor with many of these officers and detective in the Dunkirk Police Department,” said Schmidt in a statement. “We worked together to win tough cases and get convictions. I’m honored they have thrown their support behind me and I’m looking forward to working with them all again to bring justice to victims of crimes in Dunkirk and across Chautauqua County.”
