Breaking News: Assemblymember Phil Ting re-launches Reset San Francisco

Public Safety

We are fortunate that San Francisco is on pace to record the lowest number of homicides since 1954, and violent crimes are on a decline. But we all agree – we still have a long way to go to make every San Francisco neighborhood safe.

There are still San Francisco neighborhoods and transit lines where crime is unacceptably high.With 95% of homicide victims under the age of 25 or high school dropouts, how can we make our schools better and safer so young people stay in school and out of trouble? How can we use new technology without losing our privacy rights? How can we put more police on the streets without putting more politics into public safety?

Hard questions. But resetting San Francisco public safety means finding the best answers.
