Promises about Crime on Fitz-O-Meter

Adopt countywide public safety master plan

The plan -- developed with the police chiefs, the U.S. marshals office and the county prosecutor's office -- will improve intelligence sharing between communities, coordinate purchasing and improve records management inter-operability.

Establish and enhance the regional crime lab

"It is essential that the current efforts to establish a regional crime lab be brought to a successful conclusion."

Create a missing persons database

"Such a database will simplify the currently cumbersome process which has frustrated the efforts of both law enforcement and the public."

Establish a program to keep offenders from returning to crime

"A community-based program is needed to address the root causes of recidivism; the link between criminal activity and economic opportunity must be acknowledged and addressed."
