Our police department does a great job! I have gone through the process to be an official volunteer with the Pittsburg Police department and have seen a little of what it takes to help keep our city safe. I will work to maintain and hopefully expand current staffing levels. I also learned that the Police department can not tackle all our problems alone. Property owners play a role. Residents play a role. Organizations serving the community play a role. If elected, my goal will be to work with the council to create policies that allow all these groups to work together, maintain local control of our public safety, and look for ways to help our residents with services that go beyond only the Police.
