Funding Public Safety
& Services

I will work to increase resources and pay for County Public Safety and Services departments. I’ll work together with Dorchester County Sheriff, EMS, and Fire Safety to promote and create collaborative partnerships (community policing programs and policies) between the law enforcement agencies and the individuals and organizations they serve to develop solutions to problems and to increase trust in the police and the criminal justice system. I see firsthand how meth, crack, heroin, opioids, and alcohol are destroying the hope and lives many in Dorchester County, especially our youth. I'll work with our public safety departments to fight the drugs and substance abuse crises and to invest in prevention, treatment, counseling, and rehabilitation programs
