Improve Safety and Trust

Creating a safer community requires us to look at the root causes of violence. Poverty, systemic disinvestment and discrimination, and community trauma are all contributing factors that require difficult conversations to resolve. We must reduce despair and scarcity by providing opportunities for our community members who are the most at risk of being victimized by violence.

Priorities for a safer Stockton are to reduce violent crimes, property crimes, and homicides.
