Office of Mayor Chuck Reed


I know that public safety and police staffing levels are a top concern for all San José residents. To be sure, we have staffing challenges in our police department and it's clear that we need more officers on the street. As I said in my State of the City Address, restoring capacity in our police department remains my top priority for my final 9 months in office.

In that light, I wanted to share the following letter, which details actions that the City Council is taking to improve police staffing levels and services. I also encourage you to read my March Budget Message outlining additional public safety proposals that will be brought back for the Council's consideration later this spring.

Additionally, I encourage you attend the Community Budget Meetings in May to learn more about the City's fiscal situation and share your thoughts directly with City leaders.

Thank you for staying informed about these important issues and making your voice heard.
