The Santa Cruz City Council created the Public Safety Citizen Task Force (Task Force) to provide a platform for the community to come together to better understand our current public safety concerns and recommend actions the City and our partners can take to improve the quality of life in Santa Cruz.  The Task Force consists of community members, business owners, educators, and safety experts and broadly represent the community.  Task Force members will work together over the next six months to identify and explore the underlying safety concerns we face as a community and present their independent findings and recommendations to the City Council.  

The Task Force completed their work on Wendesday, November 20, 2013.  The Task Force will present their findings and recommendations to City Council during a Study Session on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers.
