Mayor’s SAFE Orlando Task Force-UPDATE
Public safety is a top priority of this administration and together with the
Police Department; we have been squarely focused on finding solutions to crime
and engaging local, state and national resources as well as community partners
That’s why in August, as a continuum to the City’s three-year, multi-million
dollar public safety initiative, Mayor Dyer established the SAFE Orlando Task
Force to tap the expertise of 26 community leaders and empower the entire
community to play an active role in crime reduction initiatives and programs.
On Monday, during our City Council workshop, final recommendations of the SAFE
Orlando Task Force were presented by Dr. Stanley Stone, Task Force Chair. Over
the past seven months, these task force members have dedicated substantial time
attending task force and subcommittee meetings, hosting community forums and
conducting extensive research.
These all-inclusive recommendations, together with the numerous crime prevention
initiatives and programs already underway, will have an impact on our
community’s public safety.
Mayor Dyer and Chief
McCoy are committed
to you, the task force members and the entire community that we will act swiftly
and deliberately to begin implementing or advocating for the Task Force
