Reforming Public Safety

As part of the process of reckoning with our past, advocating for a better present, and expanding the possibilities for a future, I've drafted a document outlining my vision for re-imagining public safety. This document outlines my position on legislation that has already been introduced in the City of Pittsburgh, legislation that I hope to introduce, and legislation that I support at the state and federal levels. Below is the new draft of my policy paper as well as the original draft that was released in September. The new version was created after talking with members of the public, experts in the field, and fellow legislators.
I welcome any and all feedback that you might have on this topic. You can fill out the form below to provide feedback. Additionally, you can contact the District 8 office with your feedback at district8@pittsburghpa.gov or 412-255-2133. 

I look forward to working with my colleagues at the City of Pittsburgh to ensure that these reforms will guide the City towards being a safer, more equitable place to live.
