Priority 2: Safer Streets & Smarter Approaches to Crime and Public Safety



That's my car above. A few weeks ago, the window was smashed overnight while parked on San Carlos Street in District 6. This happened only a few weeks after my front bike tire was stolen in the middle of Downtown San Jose at 5 pm. 

I'm experiencing crime in our community like many of you in San Jose.

And like you, I want something done about it.

So as I continue rolling out my six priorities as your councilmember, today I focus on one of San Jose's most crucial issues: public safety.

Last week, I released the first one: Priority 1: Reduce the Cost of Housing & the Extent of Homelessness.

Today, I unveil:



My ideas are based upon:

  • my personal experiences,
  • listening to San Joséans, policy experts, and city workers, and
  • what I've learned from other cities

My plan is comprised of 3 pillars:

Pillar 1: Smarter Policing
Pillar 2: Safer Streets & Neighborhoods
Pillar 3: Trust and Accountability

You can view all the details on my website at

If you have questions or feedback on my plan, please reach out to me at [email protected].

I'll be sharing the rest of my priorities with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy these fast-moving days of December!
