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 52% in Oxnard since 2011. In 2017 we had a record 17 murders and we are on track to exceed that figure in 2018.
This is totally unacceptable.
As your Mayor, 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.
