Actual crime, and the perception of crime, are concerns that affect every citizen in Monroe. A much more aggressive approach is needed to achieve comprehensive public safety.
Regardless of where they live, our citizens have the right to feel safe in their homes and businesses and on their streets. They must be confident that their Monroe PD is fully staffed and equipped to make a difference when it comes to reducing criminal activity, and that they are doing everything they can to consistently and proactively create a safe environment.
I commit to working closely with all of our law enforcement agencies to understand their needs and to work collaboratively with city and community leaders to make sure they are funded and staffed properly to provide modern, effective protection and responsiveness.
