Public safety and criminal justice
Committee chair: Councilor Campbell
Vice chair: Councilor McCarthy
We evaluate and encourage the work done by residents to prevent crime. We also focus on homeland security and terrorism.
We work with county, state, and federal agencies and community groups on issues related to jails and prisons. We hope to lower the prison population and prevent those who get locked up from returning to a life of crime. The goal is to keep the public safe.
We also work on public safety issues that affect women and girls with the Committee on Healthy Women, Families, and Communities.
