Protecting our neighborhoods is government’s top priority

You deserve to be safe from harm and feel secure in your community. But under Gavin Newsom, California cities have seen an increase in burglaries, car thefts, and violent crimes all while violent felons are released early and allowed to roam our streets without respect to the rights of their victims.

As mayor, Kevin Faulconer kept San Diego one of the safest big cities in the United States. As other cities defunded the police, he increased the department’s budget and staffing. He protected peaceful protesters and had violent rioters arrested. He appointed the city’s first female police chief, made 9-1-1 responses faster, was a national leader in the adoption of body-worn cameras, and oversaw a historic recruitment effort to ensure the best and brightest wear the badge.

As governor, Kevin Faulconer will never forget that your safety is the government’s top priority. He will support the hard-working law enforcement professionals who keep us safe. He will also expect public safety officers to meet the highest standards as they fulfill their oath to protect the public. And he will work to ensure violent criminals are held accountable for their actions.
