Public Safety

Keeping residents safe should be our local government’s number one priority.

Peter will be actively engaged with our Police and Fire departments to ensure that our streets remain safe, our responses remain swift, and that our first responders are cared for, even as they risk their own safety for ours.Our Mount Vernon first responders are individuals who have dedicated themselves to public service. Following his participation in the City’s 12-week Citizens Academy course, Peter has a new understanding and appreciation for all that is required in our departments’ efforts to partner with this community and work together to keep residents safe.
