The violent crime problem in Anchorage is unacceptable. Disturbing gang incidents affect everyone by taking away our sense of security in our own neighborhoods. Harriet supports adding officers to the Anchorage Police Department to bring our force in line with other communities, or better. She will support tough prosecution to back up the officers on the streets. Harriet believes every crime matters and should get prompt and vigorous response. As a community, feeling safe in our streets and homes is the absolute least we should expect from our local government.
