My first and foremost concern is safety in our city.
Statistics Canada has revealed that Lethbrige has the highest Crime Severity Index rating in our country. We’re ranked 138.7, which is 35 points higher than our CSI rating only five years ago, and I regard this rise in crime as absolutely unacceptable.
Restoring the Lethbridge Police Services budget that was unwisely cut in 2020 is the key to ensuring our local police are adequately staffed, equipped, and trained to do their difficult and often dangerous work. I will advocate to restore these resources, and implement the strategies being developed by the LPS like youth engagement, new patrol deployments, and stronger responses to prolific offenders and crime hot spots like our downtown core.
As your Mayor I will not turn a blind eye while crime rises and our community suffers.
I stand for law and order, and safety in Lethbridge is my number one priority.
