Public Safety & Crime Prevention:
"A safe environment is a basic human right. It is the duty of the Mayor’s Office to ensure that our streets, our schools and public spaces are safe for Allentown’s Citizens and our visitors.
As a law enforcement officer, I am uniquely qualified to effectively address the problem of crime against our citizens in Allentown.
As Allentown’s Mayor, my strategy to increase public safety and renew confidence in our law enforcement officers will include three major initiatives.
First, over the next four years, I will add a significant number of officers to the Allentown Police Department. We must be mindful of the city's financial position, which can only be ascertained once an audit of the city's finances has been completed. But this much is certain: Allentown is a city with an increasing population. Additional qualified personnel will enable the Police Department to be more proactive with walking patrols, business checks, bike patrols and an increased presence and engagement at more community meetings.
Second, I will place an emphasis on a community based crime prevention program. This includes visits by police personnel to local businesses and/or people’s homes to help them assess the safety and security of their businesses or homes to better prevent being targeted by criminals.
Third, I will create procedures and programs to reduce repeat offenses. We need to reduce the likelihood that Allentown citizens who have committed a crime will return to criminal activity. There needs to be an increased focus and energy on rehabilitation programs, both for behavioral and substance abuse activity."
