Addressing homelessness and keeping our City safe, clean and well-maintained is our top priority, which will help improve property values and quality of life.
The City of Modesto has about half of the police officers, including traffic enforcement, needed to keep a community of our size safe. Meanwhile, the number of DUIs and traffic fatalities continue to grow. Additional funding is needed to provide more police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, and paramedics to respond quickly to emergencies.
If we do not address these issues now, they will become even more expensive in the future.
