On Improving Public Safety
Muhammad cites working better with the police as the key to improvement in crime rates; Miller-Cole favors community-policing stating, “police alone can’t do it.” Lynette Gibson McElhaney wants to increase the economic base, to decrease the incentive to performing crime. She also wants to leverage neighborhood watches and ambassador programs from the business improvement districts. Sullivan points to infrastructure improvements as the key to reducing crime, i.e. improving night lighting, and patching potholes.  LL Young talks about decreasing robbery, through community involvement at the junior high level. Nyeisha DeWitt talks about power of local hire, and providing more options for jobs therefore decreasing crime.
