    We must adequately staff our contracted and assigned Sheriff's Deputies. I believe we should increase funding by adding 4 deputies to assist in keeping a safe Harrisburg and low crime rates. I believe we must ensure every law enforcement officer that is responsible for protecting Harrisburg has the best equipment at their disposal. We must do our part in protecting our guardians.

    Equipping our LEOs with the right tools will make everyone safer. We are in the middle of an opiate crisis. Our LEOs need to the tools to fight the epidemic. They are our first lines of defense for the problem. We should give them the tools they need.

    I strongly support a fully staffed and financial backed police department. We need to find ways to continue to fund our police officers into the future in order to remain in the top tier of county providers. This keeps our city safer by retaining officers longer in the community. I believe we are making steps in the right direction. Sharing resources with other communities is an option.

    The national average for patrol cars is around fifty thousand miles and most of the Long Beach patrol cars are over one hundred thousand miles. To keep a patrol car in top condition gets incredibly expensive the older they get, at a certain point it is cheaper to buy a new car than to maintain an old one to the necessary standard. It is past time to buy new ones.

    During a recent visit with our police chief I was told that the department is short five slots. If he could hire all of the officers tomorrow, it would be about nine months before the empty slots would be considered filled. Retention is a problem the he deals with and it must be addressed, we get a police officer for a year or two then the officer will move to a city with better pay and benefits.
