I attended the City of Davenport Cops & Cones last week at Vander Veer Park where the police department was giving out free ice cream cones to chirdren in the Quad Cities area.
I was able to meet several folks in and around the The Quad Cities. While talking to citizens I was able to hear their concerns for the city of Davenport. One of their big concerns are streets and
crime followed up about flood protection. We need as going forward to address those issues. I am waiting to see what the currant Mayors task force comes up with on the flooding?
I’ve met with the Director of The Juvenile Department and discussed number of cases they receive in a given year and number of beds they currently have and number they need to house these
Juvenile criminals. I agree we need to control the crime and we might look into a Police Athletic Program in order to reach out to the younger kids up to 4th grade?
I’m also going to meet with The Police Association and discuss their needs and operation.
We have a lot to do but our Goal is Public Safety
