Promises about Public Safety on Krise-O-Meter
"As mayor, I will ... reestablish a community policing philosophy that emphasizes the relationship between the police officer and the neighborhood in an effort to promote trust and cooperation."
"As mayor, I will tighten our high-speed pursuit policy."
"As mayor, I will implement StPeteStat, based on the CitiStat model of statistics-driven accountability standards. Building on the city’s current Scorecard measures, StPeteStat will consist of regular meetings, during which my staff and I will meet with department heads to examine and analyze past performance, future performance objectives, and overall performance strategies."
Q: Name three policies pushed by Mayor Bill Foster during his administration that you support and would advocate continuing. Name three others that you would want to change. A: "I will utilize red light cameras at the most dangerous intersections for the purposes of public safety, not revenue."
Rick Kriseman said he would hire an administrator to deal with Midtown, a position that had not been filled since the 2011 firing of former deputy mayor and police chief Goliath Davis.
