I have championed increased funding and support for the Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department, and the volunteer and paid Fire and Rescue Departments. I have worked to protect our combined emergency service system that brings together volunteers and paid staff to keep our community safe.
- Supported increasing patrol officers for the Police Department, to enable community policing to be implemented;
- Fought successfully for construction of a healthy and quiet indoor firing and training range;
- Protected the autonomy of our Volunteer Fire and Rescue Companies and promoted their vital community service. I have worked to improve equal access to training and decision-making, for volunteer and paid rescue and fire staff alike;
- I applaud the changes made to school building entrances to make our schools safer.
