Ashe-Nadrowski Releases Crime Solution Platform Ahead of Bayonne Election

In the sixth edition of her Solution Sunday series, Bayonne Mayoral candidate Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski addresses the issue of crime:

(BAYONNE) 一 As part of her latest installment of the Nadrowski Campaign’s “Solution Sunday” platform series, Mayoral Candidate Sharon Ashe Nadrowski released her team’s plans to address “Crime” issues in Bayonne.

“Our topic last week – schools – was one of our most popular yet! Even our opponents are starting to talk about schools (finally). Interestingly, they’re choosing to “accuse” me of advocating for the construction and improvement of schools. It’s true, we need new and improved schools. Full stop, no questions asked. This is not an accusation – this is a fact. What my opponents don’t understand is that we don’t have to do this alone, and it should NOT solely be on the backs of Bayonne taxpayers. We can offset costs through developer contributions and proper planning with our government partners at the state and federal levels.” said Ashe Nadrowski.

The following is the installment released on Sunday, April 24th about “Crime:”

“The prevalence of crime and issues pertaining to public safety are foundational factors for quality of life. In fact, there is a strong belief that quality of life does not exist without the perception of safety. This makes sense, right? If you don’t feel safe, settled, and at some level of peace, how can you enjoy anything else? After speaking with thousands of Bayonne residents over the past several months, there is a real concern that crime is on the rise and our neighborhoods are less safe. Here are some of my ideas to help tackle crime and make people feel safe in our community again:

1. RECOGNIZE UNDERLYING ISSUES                                                                        There are many factors that contribute to crime. It generally doesn’t just happen, and our city government can no longer afford to shy away from the reality that there are underlying socio-economic and other issues that lead to a cycle of crime. Under a Nadrowski administration, the first step in making our community safer is to consider and accept that a cycle of crime starts with issues like food insecurity, mental health, career instability, and underserved education and housing needs. By recognizing these realities, we can better work to stop crime before it even happens.

2. INSTITUTE CRISIS INTERVENTION                                                                        There are many ways that we, as a city, can intervene before underlying issues escalate to the point of crimes actually being committed and arrests being made. Adversarial interactions that lead to arrests and incarceration often result in suffering and heartache. The dedicated officers of the Bayonne Police Department are the best in the State of New Jersey – there’s not a question in my mind. But the reality is that they can’t fight crime alone. They need help. They need our help! Under a Nadrowski administration they’ll get that help. I want to give our police officers the tools they need to succeed. Under my team’s leadership, the City will partner with our non-profit community service partners to accept referrals from our Police Department and constituent service offices. Referrals will be made in an effort to intervene and mitigate crisis before such matters escalate spill into the broader community.

3. GET BACK TO THE BASICS                                                                                   After we make efforts to mitigate crisis, we need to ensure that proactive community policing remains an ongoing priority. Whether it’s renewing our approach to officer visibility, assessing the deployment of our existing assets, or specifically assigning officers to certain community-based work, doing these things gets Bayonne residents in tune with the City employees that are charged with their safety. Under a Nadrowski administration special care and attention will be given to grant opportunities at the county, state, and federal levels that can help the City fund these initiatives. In addition to seeking new funding streams to support community policing, my administration will prioritize the efficient use of locally budgeted funds to maximize every tax dollar spent on public safety to ensure public safety objectives are met.

Every Sunday from now, until Election Day on May 10th, the Nadrowski Campaign is going to release concrete solutions to the problems facing Bayonne via Facebook.
