It’s Time For Oakland To Adopt A Comprehensive Public Safety Plan

Tonight at 6:00 p.m., the Oakland City Council’s Public Safety Committee will meet for the second time on the subject of “Public Safety Initiatives Throughout the City.”  Staff reports are here and here.  MOBN! has long advocated for a comprehensive public safety plan, with coordination of all of the city’s safety efforts, specific goals and accountability.  We had hoped that this is what we would get from Strategic Policy Partners (Wasserman and Bratton).  Instead, we got bits and pieces, and a long memo urging more community involvement.

Despite a slight reduction in violent crime in the last sixteen months, the city has much yet to do.  In this letter to the Public Safety Committee, we set out our view of what a plan would look like, and what some of the key components should be.

  1. Why would anyone move to Oakland. It’s a war zone. Police don’t know what there doing and a large part of the population are animals. You turn on the news every single day and you see nothing but violence.

    So pathetic!

    infߋrmation. ӏ ɑm haρpy tɦat уou simply shared this useful іnformation with uѕ.

  3. If you do your cleanse and eat a healthy diet with mostly
    fruits and vegetables and very little red meat or no meat at all you will feel lighter.
    But how do you get these amazing foods into your
    diet easily and without breaking the bank. I think most of us bought
    into this promotional title Superfoods but when last time
    the ‘mortal’ continental cucumber was claimed to be one of the Superfoods, I woke up.

  4. This post will assist the internet viewers for creating new weblog
