(Cleveland, Ohio)- Cleveland mayoral candidate Zack Reed will unveil his safety plan on Wednesday, July 14, which he says will go a long way toward reducing crime in Cleveland.
The plan addresses pressing needs of both the police department and the community at-large. “We are not going to simply police our way out of the scourge of violence that has enveloped this city,” Reed said in a statement.
He continued, “There must be acknowledgement of the symptoms that have caused this epidemic to spiral out of control in the first place, while also ensuring that our safety forces are staffed and equipped to deal with these issues in a constitutional manner.”
As crime has become a major issue in this year’s mayoral contest, Reed has firmly positioned himself as the safety candidate. He summarized his commitment to the residents of Cleveland, “We finally have a chance in this election to reverse these horrible trends and my administration will make the eradication of violence a daily priority.”
