Public Safety

When out in the community, public safety is the #1 topic of questions and concerns. As your county leader, I have turned the helplessness I felt after losing two sons to senseless gun violence into activism and work to propose and deliver initiatives that contribute to keeping our children, friends, family, and loved ones safer. I work closely with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office on community engagement programs addressing public safety, gun violence, and crime prevention.
