Public Safety - Allison Pickard for County Council District 2

Public Safety

Public Safety and First Responders in Anne Arundel County

Peace of mind and thriving communities must be a priority. Leaders in Anne Arundel County must continue to invest in our first responders, through five star training and competitive compensation. We must ensure that all stakeholders are at the decision -making tables if we are going to foster a level of trust and retain high quality employees in our public safety sector. In her first term, Allison has had steadfast commitment to investing in our Police, Fire and Detention infrastructure.  We also must seek best practices and innovative solutions to the new challenges that face our communities such as behavioral health, addiction issues, and violent crime.

Allison has succeeded in increasing our Public Safety investment by 30% for our local heroes. Her efforts have added more firefighters and police officers, including additional Crisis Response teams and a new body-worn camera program. A safe community is the best community.
