Public Safety

Making our Neighborhoods and Parks Safer

Public safety must be our city government’s top priority.  Unfortunately, recent FBI crime reporting data shows that crime has risen 22% in Oxnard. Homicides have increased  67%. 

This is totally unacceptable.  

As your City Councilman, I will work to increase police patrols in our neighborhoods, parks and schools.  I will support tougher measures to crack down on the city’s nearly 1,200 known criminal gang members.   Creating a vibrant downtown is not possible if merchants and customers fear gang activity.  By reducing administration costs at City Hall and focusing on essential services, Oxnard can focus its resources on expanded community policing to better protect the safety of our families.
