CINCINNATI, OH | MAR. 29, 2024Orlando Sonza released the following statement regarding the results of the City of Cincinnati Community Perceptions Survey by the ETC Institute:

 

"It is clear that Cincinnati residents think the city is a great place to raise a family, but they have concerns with the direction of public safety in their communities. Cincinnati City Council and leaders throughout Hamilton County need to heed the concerns of their citizens and focus more resources on crime prevention and funding for law enforcement."

 

According to the report, only 40% of residents feel an "overall feeling of safety in City" and only 28% of residents were very satisfied or satisfied with the City's overall efforts to prevent crime. In addition, 61% of residents said there was "more needed" with the "visibility of police in neighborhoods."

 

"As a member of Congress, I will work with city leaders and government officials to fund our police and increase recruitment resources to address the growing shortage in our police force. Public safety should be the number one priority for the city's budget as we enter the remainder of 2024 and beyond."
