Public Safety


Improving public safety is a high priority of mine. The residents of Tacoma deserve safe, equitable and healthy communities.  These types of communities cannot be achieved by detaining and over-policing its citizens. A truly progressive city does not require a militarized police force; instead, we should pursue accountability in our legal system and practice alternative forms of rehabilitation like Restorative Justice, which offers a new path to rehabilitation when dealing with criminalized behaviors.
