COMMUNITY ALERT: A PUBLIC SAFETY MESSAGE FROM FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE LODGE 52 SILICON VALLEY

One has to ponder the thought process of why our law makers are always trying to dilute our system of laws.  Over the last 20 years we have had a significant drop in violent crimes of murder and robbery, for example.  What occurred?  Do you remember the term "tough on crime?"  Incarceration and longer sentences has been one answer. The three strikes law also kept our communities safer. Current trends in crime statistics may be changing.  Enacting laws to make our communities less safe leaves us bewildered and questioning the logic of such a move.  We are already seeing a significant early release of prisoners whose impact is only now starting to be felt.  Probation and parole officers frequently have an unmanageable case load that jeopardizes public safety. 

Proposition 47 now before the voters will reduce a number of current felonies to a misdemeanor classification.  Worse, criminals already in prison could apply to reduce their current sentences allowing them back into the community.  Date rape drugs could be dropped to a misdemeanor. Imagine your child being given a drug that significantly increases the probability of the violent life changing crime of RAPE!  Imagine you are a victim of a burglary and a handgun is stolen?  Yes, it could be re-classified a misdemeanor.  The list goes on. 

The concept of public safety is increasingly stretched to the limit. Yes, less people will go to jail.  Yes, the state can save money and yes, the chances of you becoming a victim will likely increase.  When we hear the term, "cost savings," how many people are willing to sign over a check with your  child, friend, or family member's name on it? 

 As Always Be Safe,

Announcement of the police that to all they don’t hate with the criminal but they hate to the crime. Then they announced that too to keep safe the city and to see any suspicious person then call on the helpline number of police office.
