The citizens of Redding have strongly voiced concerns with the current level of service provided for public safety. While many of the community’s most concerning issues are due to State Law changes and scarcity of funding, meeting community expectations through continuous improvement is important for the City of Redding. It is critical that realistic community goals be established based on the resources available. To that end, an effort has begun to ensure the public receives comprehensive information regarding public safety staffing, standard levels of service, funding limitations, and roles and responsibilities for the criminal justice system. It is expected for the effort to be ongoing, but there will be a focused push over the next four to six weeks.

The City will utilize multiple platforms to communicate with the public with the purpose of generating interest, knowledge and engagement. Initial surveys were released via social media within the last two weeks. Those surveys are simply examples of ways the City will begin interacting with the public, inviting commentary, and strategizing public safety.

City Manager Barry Tippin, along with Chief of Police Roger Moore and Fire Chief Gerry Gray, encourages invitations from community organizations to further Public Safety discussions in person. All three want to address comments and questions from the public about current efforts and the results of prior endeavors; they will further discuss resource and jurisdictional challenges. These meetings can be formal or informal as desired; Tippin, Moore and Gray are available to get involved in discussions and answer questions from the City’s perspective. City Manager Tippin said “The community is vested in our public safety, and the best way to match expectations with real solutions is through robust dialogue. Through such a process is the how a City government truly can serve its citizens.” The City invites the public to dialogue about what public safety does and should look like in Redding. A third Public Safety Workshop will be scheduled to discuss the results of this new community engagement effort, as well as any possible needed action. The workshop will likely be held in late February.

To arrange for City Manager Tippin, or Chiefs Moore or Gray, to address groups, answer questions, or provide additional information or feedback about Public Safety, please contact Misty Rhoads in the City Manager’s office at 225-4063 or mrhoads@cityofredding.org.
