Public Safety addresses the overall safety of the community, specifically in the areas of law enforcement, security, fire protection and emergency medical services. Community safety is affected by residents’ perception of safety and security, the overall crime rate, emergency services response times, fire prevention and suppression capabilities and the quality of emergency medical care and transport services. The community recognizes the importance of a partnership with public safety professionals.
