Public Safety – Priority Number One

Mishawaka Communicator – A Letter from Mayor Dave Wood

Public Safety – Priority Number One

There is no service provided by local government more vital than public safety and here in Mishawaka, it’s my priority number one. We put our (which is to say your) money where our mouths are! Police and Fire represent the biggest departments in Mishawaka government in terms of money allocated in our budget and number of employees (by far the largest employee groups in the City).

But it doesn’t stop there. Mishawaka is also dedicated to hiring the best officers it can find, equipping them with the latest equipment, building state-of-the-art facilities, providing them top level training and providing competitive pay and benefits. I have mentioned before, and I want to reiterate, that no incidents of crime or senseless violence will be tolerated in our Mishawaka community.

The safety and security of our citizens is our utmost priority, and we will do whatever it takes to prevent violence in any form! Furthermore, we will actively pursue, arrest and bring to justice anyone responsible for any violent acts and crimes of any kind.
