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."
