Health & Safety First
A sensible plan for public health and safety
>> Continue to collaborate with the state and county governments, business, and the healthcare sector to remain vigilant in fighting the COVID pandemic by enforcing public health protocols and preparing for a potential second wave of outbreaks.
>> Ensure that first-responders— police, fire fighters, emergency medical technicians, water safety officers, and emergency managers—have the staffing and resources to ensure their personal safety so that they can ensure the public’s safety.
>> Intensify community policing and neighborhood security watch activities to increase police presence and foster stronger relationships between neighborhood residents and officers.
>> Step up drug enforcement efforts in collaboration with federal and state agencies involved in anti-drug initiatives.
>> For natural or man-made disasters, pandemics, or other crises, coordinate the emergency response of state and county agencies so resources are best utilized and government speaks with one voice, not many.
>> Expand on the privately led Visitor Public Safety Conferences to commit City agencies to protecting our guests during their visits to our islands.
