Ending Gun Violence In Oakland – Important Program This Saturday, September 21

Make Oakland Better Now! has become pretty well known  for advocating for more cops;  it is true that we believe the Oakland Police Department is critically understaffed, and the department needs to be grown to at least 925 officers.

But we know that there are other essential violence prevention elements besides a fully staffed police department.  We continue to support a properly run Operation Ceasefire (and we’ll be posting more about this very soon) and we support those programs for which the data proves a positive effect on violence reduction.
