The number one job of Council is to ensure that our city is able and ready to respond to the call for service. I have worked to fully fund both the Police and Fire Departments.
As a Council Member, I have done my best to support Police and Fire in their mission to serve San Gabriel. When I was elected the Police Department was understaffed by eight sworn officers. Our Police Department currently is able to maintain full staffing levels and fill any vacancies.
The Fire Department keeps an impeccable response time. I continue to advocate maintaining the vehicle fund to always have the ability to purchase new front line vehicles when needed.
This year we are opening the Marshall Park Substation to handle reports and traffic bureau. Additionally, it will serve as an anchor in the South side of the city to deter crime. Our team is creative and innovative in neighborhood engagement and community policing.
