Community Oriented Assistance

Ending Community Oriented Policing and Implementing

Community Oriented Assistance

To understand a plan first we have to define some words from my candidate statement.

'Human Environmental Justice' and 'Environmental Justice'

The state of California is now requiring cities to use the term "Environmental Justice" so we have to understand what that actually means.  The state wants to increase housing and the cost of housing.  Require solar panels and every environmental item suggested.  This increases the cost of home ownership. What is the result of this,  over crowed neighborhood, high density housing that no one can afford.

We need Human Environmental Justice, keeping humans and the environment first.  Living spaces, parks, quality of life and building with that concept in mind.  Now how many high cost apartments or townhomes can we get in to the 27.2 square miles of Santa Ana but  how much QUALITY living spaces can we have in Santa Ana...  Three families in a two bedroom home is slavery by any standard.  High rent and no space.  I do not want residents living like rats in a cage that is talked about in so many phycology books.  But better living by better spaces.

Community Oriented Assistance

Now we can look at changing how the Santa Ana Police Department interfaces with the community.  There is a more efficient, safer way to assist Santa Ana residents with support from the Police Department. 

Here is a basic outline in a PowerPoint that can download and you can run it with your favorite PowerPoint viewer.

Police Implementation

Once we start C.O.A., we will assist the SAPD in to the new Era of Community Oriented Assistance then we start phase two, opening local assistance locations in each Ward.  A location residents can go to for help.  I will have a section just on Ward Assistance Facilities in days to come.  Something a little like West End Police Station but supported differently and with different abilities to assist the residents in each Ward or Area.

These local "Community Assistance Offices" will help when families don't know where to go. A teen is having problems and the parents don't know how to help.  We can be there to give assistance. 

Instead of a parent not being able to go down town we can have an officer or a social worker at these locations so a young mother that needs help can get guidance as to where and how to get real help.

A place away from the difficulty of going downtown to a local facility that has a smile and a hand to help.
