More Police

We need more police. When I attend the crime block captain meetings, we are encouraged to call on anything suspicious. "Low priority" calls are now answered in approximately 30 minutes in our area, up from 15 minutes in 2012 in our area. Recently we called on two homeless people shooting up in our neighborhood, people that had drifted over from the lake area from next to La Laguna Campground. The police never came in the hour we waited for them so we walked them off ourselves. It's not ok for someone to sit on the side of the road and shoot meth in our neighborhood and not safe for us to deal with high people. Yet if we allow it, they'll come back so we protect our neighborhoods and do what we must. With Prop 47 and increasing crime, safety is ever so important. If you want the city to attract the right kind of residents and businesses, you must make the city CLEAN and SAFE before spending money on campground upgrades or freeway signs that aren't readable. Start investing in safety so we can loose the bad reputation.. As a crime captain, I am very frustrated with low priority response times, they always get away. The safety of the residents should be a priority. More police!

    Safety, traffic control, maintenance of roads, a Clean and safe City should should be priorities, not more debt.

    Safety and a clean city first! If these conditions are not met, the council members are simply flushing money down the toilet.
