DAVe's Priorities

STANDING UP FOR PUBLIC SAFETY
We are under attack by out of control policies from Sacramento that have made our communites less safe. AB 109 Prop 47 and 57 have let violent criminals out of jail early to go onto commit more crimes. We have not had a law enforcement leader willing to stand up and speak out; I pledge to be that leader.

GANG CRIME AND PREVENTION
The  first  step  in  stopping  gang  membership  is preventing  delinquency. I am dedicated to expanding the Gang Reduction   Intervention Partnership, a model program for keeping kids in  school and out of gangs. I will also beef up patrols in the  county  and embrace a zero tolerance approach to gang activity, focusing  resources on eradicating gangs and their leadership.

FIXING ORANGE COUNTY'S HOMELESS CRISIS
The  recent  increase  in  crime  rates  have  coincided  with  steep  increases  in  homelessness.  Instead of arguing  over  jurisdictions  as   Sheriff I will lead  the  way, I will  support  transformative  solutions  and I will  enforce  the  law.  In  turn  this  will  safeguard public security  and  keep  neighborhoods  and  commercial districts  safe  so  that  business  and  job  creators  can  grow.  

RESTORING TRANSPARENCY TO THE OFFICE
I will put an end to the scandals that plague the Sheriffs  department by insisting on transparency and ensuring our law enforcement upholds justice with the greatest level of integrity.

ENSURING FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
I will institute a comprehensive audit from top to bottom including every aspect of the Department to discover efficiencies and save taxpayer money while providing the level of service people should  expect from the largest law enforcement agency in the county.  

MODERNIZATION THROUGH INNOVATION: TO STOP HIGH TECH CRIMES
The  face of crime is rapidly evolving with the next frontier being  cyber crimes, including fraud and identity theft. I will ensure that   the Sheriff’s department remains steps ahead of high tech  criminals with the latest innovative technology.

CONCEALED CARRY PERMITS
I support an individual’s second amendment right. I believe in “shall issue” as the standard for law abiding citizens when they apply for a CCW. Period. I believe “may issue” should have no more of a “good cause” test than an individual wants to protect themselves or their families. These are the foundational beliefs forming my position and will be the foundation from which I approach the policy on issuing Carry Concealed Weapon permits (CCW) as the Sheriff of Orange County.
