Support Memphis Police. Value Public Safety.
I value public safety, and I believe that citizens must support their police officers.
I encourage Memphians and our city’s leadership to support our police officers. I support my city’s police officers because I value public safety. We depend on the hard work of Memphis city police officers to secure our neighborhoods and our citizens.
I am concerned about the reduced number of officers serving our city. Many dedicated police officers are leaving Memphis. Others have retired. There are not enough officers to safeguard our communities, our families and our friends.
I am concerned about the quality of the officers that are hired. City leadership continues to reduce wages and streamline benefits offered to our police force. The best quality officers deserve the best quality services. We must protect the benefits of those who protect us.
I call on my fellow citizens of Memphis, as well as our city’s leadership to protect the benefits of those who protect us.
