Safety Crisis

Safety Crisis

Harris County is in the midst of a safety crisis.

Rape cases in 2019 were cleared at a rate of only 11.5%. That means if you are raped in Harris County, there is about a 90% chance your rapist walks away. On my first day in office I will create a special investigations unit dedicated solely to clearance of sex crimes.

The clearance rate for burglaries in 2019 was 2.29%. Rates that low violate your fundamental sense of security at home and work.

There are 101 budgeted patrol positions that are unfilled. I will immediately fill those vacancies upon taking office.
