Short summary (Optional): 

We are committed to opening a crisis intervention office to address the root causes of violent crime before it occurs, the result of $700,000 in funding from the Wells Fargo Foundation. The data is clear: These incidents are almost all interpersonal and occur among individuals who know one another and have access to high-powered semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines. That is why as we continue to hold recruitment classes to bolster our police department, find ways to pay our officers better, and establish a Real-Time Crime Center to fill the gap.
