CRIME STATS: There is not one simple solution to reducing crime in our community.
It takes a coordinated, comprehensive approach to move the needle.
Here are some of the things we’ve been working on:
• We expanded our Head Start Program to serve more children and their families.
• We’re developing programs to stop those who have experienced trauma from entering the school-to-prison pipeline. These programs include Camp Hope, Step Up and No Entry.
• We’re investing in Rockford Promise so all RPS 205 students who live in Rockford and earn a 3.0 GPA can attend Northern Illinois University tuition and general fees free.
• We’re stepping up enforcement and equipping our officers with the latest technology and resources.
• We are advocating for judges to hold those with gun offenses and strangulations accountable.
• We are building relationships with the community. Strong relationships of mutual trust between police agencies and the communities they serve are critical to maintaining public safety and effective policing.
• We are improving neighborhoods by reducing blight and providing hope to all who live there.
• We are developing a focused deterrence/re-entry program with Winnebago County.
We know we still have work to do, but we are dedicated to making our community safer for our residents.
