Safe and Thriving Los Angeles

A Comprehensive Strategy for Reducing Crime and Enhancing Public Safety.

I am deeply committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities. My platform, “Safe and Thriving Los Angeles,” outlines a comprehensive approach to address the issue of crime in our city. 

Community Policing and Building Trust

  • Prioritize community policing strategies that emphasize positive interactions between law enforcement and residents.  I will establish regular town hall meetings, neighborhood forums, and community engagement programs to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the community.

Preventive Programs for Youth

  • Invest in after-school programs, mentorship initiatives, and sports, music and arts activities to provide positive outlets for young people, reducing the likelihood of involvement in criminal activities.

  • Collaborate with schools, nonprofits, and local businesses to create a supportive environment for at-risk youth to fund more after-school activities, mentorship programs, job training initiatives.

Restorative Justice Programs

  • Promote restorative justice programs that focus on repairing harm and rehabilitating offenders, rather than solely punitive measures. I will build collaboration with community organizations to offer diversion programs, mediation, and support for rehabilitation. 

Gun Violence Prevention

  • Advocate for common-sense gun control measures to prevent the proliferation of illegal firearms and reduce gun violence. In particular, I will support efforts to enhance background checks, regulate gun sales, and implement responsible firearm ownership laws.

  • We need to strongly discourage the use of illegal firearms such as unregistered “ghost” guns. 

Crime Hotspot Targeting

  • Implement data-driven approaches to identify crime hotspots and allocate resources effectively to address high-crime areas. This way we can increase public safety presence in these identified areas.


Mental Health and Crisis Intervention

  • Increase training for law enforcement officers to better handle situations involving mental health.

  • Establish specialized crisis intervention teams that work alongside mental health professionals that understand our community.

Technology and Innovation

  • Utilize technology for predictive policing, data analysis, and early intervention efforts to prevent crime before it occurs.

  • Encourage the use of surveillance systems and smart city solutions to enhance public safety.
