The most important responsibility of our City is to maintain a safe environment.
Supporting our police, fire and public works departments with the personnel and tools they need are paramount to achieving this goal. We are now experiencing the lowest crime rates in decades. (See http://www.cityofmonrovia.org/police/page/crime-information). To sustain that accomplishment, we must be more creative and recommit to our Community Policing program.
In that regard, we are putting together an interdisciplinary group of professionals from law enforcement, community development, code enforcement and neighborhood services, along with community residents and business people, to address crime and blight-related issues as they arise.
