Public Safety


“Public safety is a critical priority for any mayor. That’s why I will be reorganizing city government and placing the police and fire departments into my Quality of Life Cabinet.” – David Straz

Every Monday morning, David Straz will meet with the leadership of the police and fire departments to make sure they are operating their departments at a high level of professionalism. The men and women who work in those departments put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. David Straz will ensure they have the tools, talent and leadership they need to do their job and do it right.

Fire Department response times have crept up in some parts of the city and this is a high priority that must be addressed. Our police department should be an active and positive presence in every community and neighborhood.
