I agree with District 1 residents that everyone deserves to feel safe in their community – safe for your kids to walk to school, safe to walk in your neighborhood and parks after dark, and safe in your home. I will support your vision for a holistic approach to safety and crime reduction, an approach that includes not just handcuffs and jail cells, but also investing in crime prevention and implementing community-led restorative justice programs.
San Antonio’s police contract expires this year and our next council will be tasked with approving a new contract. I will support a contract that rewards model police officers while holding bad actors accountable. That contract must end the practice of writing police disciplinary records in “disappearing ink” which are then erased two years after infractions occur.
