Public Safety 

Public safety is of utmost important to me as a Commissioner. I will continue to focus on efforts to support public safety. Below are several initiatives that I have participated in to support public safety.

Drug and Alcohol

  • Serve on numerous boards and committees to address the County opioid epidemic.

  • Helped create after school programs and family support programs to address drug and alcohol issues in the county.

  • Worked to revamp the Criminal Justice Advisory Board with a focus on addressing several issues in the County such as the county opioid epidemic. 

Correctional Facility

  • Supported new initiatives at the correctional facility for veteran inmates, parenting classes, drug and alcohol programs, and programs to help inmates get their diplomas and jobs following their release.

  • Helped develop the Ex-Inmates in Transition (EXIT) committee to provide transitional assistance for inmates to reduce recidivism.

  • Received a strategic innovation grant to provide intensive case management services to inmates with the end goal of helping to find them meaningful employment.

Emergency Services

  • Helped develop the county’s communication board to help assist first responders.

  • Upgraded county 9-1-1 services and equipment to improve public safety through communication.

  • Citizens now have the ability to text to 9-1-1 in emergency situations.
