Taking on Crime in Local Communities
As the Representative for the south San Diego area and Imperial Valley, I believe I can be most effective when I work closely with the leaders of the community and you!
When I was alerted by individuals in the community of the growing number of armed robberies in San Ysidro, I turned to San Diego Police Chief Bill Lansdowne to help develop a strategy for keeping our community safe.
As a result, in late February, the Southern Division Community Relations Officer of the San Diego Police Department held a workshop for the members of the San Ysidro Business community. This workshop provided local business owners with tips and tools to better prevent robberies and to keep their employees safe. Local business owners expressed their satisfaction with this program and feel that they are better prepared to face any potential burglaries.
I will continue to closely monitor this situation and ensure that we work together to stop crime in its tracks!
