Official Site of Deborah Gagliardi for a better Arlington

 

I believe our police have been spread too thin. Arlington's changing demographics, it's high apartment occupancy rate, and the city council's focus on entertainment is outpacing what our police can be expected to control with their present force and resources. This issue will become more acute once the stadium is finished.

I believe that these crime statistics can be reversed, and I would make it a priority to properly fund and support our police. On my issues page, I have laid out steps we can take to fund increases in police manpower and resources.
