What does CLEAT Public Affairs do for Texas Law Enforcement?
The CLEAT Public Affairs team has a large focus on the Texas Capitol where we fight to maintain officers’ rights, lobby the legislature and build relationship with political leadership to ensure that Texas Law Enforcement will remain protected.
40 Years of Advocacy
CLEAT was the first to advocate full time in the state legislature and have a proud record of over 40 years of accomplishments. We lobby the state Legislature and you can read all about our most recent legislative agenda or legislative highlights from years past. CLEAT believes the next session of the state legislature begins as soon as the last one ends. Our focus on growing local PAC’s and campaigning to elect our friends in the Legislature as well as remove those who are your enemies makes this part of the Public Affairs assignment a full-time operation.
