On Hiring Police + Public Safety

Live Blogging #oakdebates | 7:29pm
Garza: right now we have to “work with what we have.” Points to leveraging private security to improve safety on the business corridors, says ‘partnerships’ are key.
Gallo: believes that we “need more officers” and we “need to pay for them.” Might have to use a ‘parcel’ or a business tax to fund it.
Juarez: we should “try new methods” wants to increase the number of officers, but we should look to “other cities” for solutions. Says that he proposes user fees on the Oakland Airport travelers, says that it has worked in New York.
McMahan: doesn’t want “cops dying on her watch” she also doesn’t want them  [the cops] to “kill innocent people either.” Mentions Prop Y, doesn’t say if she is pro or con.
