Cleaner - Safer Streets

During the resident survey that took place 2 years ago. Residents (irregardless of neighborhood) asked for a cleaner and safer community.

The City has increased funding for community policing, added a shift to cover the times when the police load is the highest so officers are not removed from the neighborhoods to handle calls out of their assigned area, added funding for increased sanitation via increased trash and litter pickup, as well as increased attention to the beach areas.

We need to monitor these programs and continue the dialog with our neighborhoods to ensure we are achieving our goal of cleaner and safer.

Cleaner is safer.  Studies show that the cleaner the neighborhood is, the less crime it tends to have. We need to understand that cleaner is safer. We need to be vigilant about the cleanliness of our public spaces, beaches and streets.
