Councilman DiCiccio’s Statement on Phoenix Police Staffing Levels Council District 610/14/2021 7:30:00 PM DiCiccio’s Statement on Phoenix Police Staffing Levels<div class="ExternalClassB116AB6697004956A534FFAD391BD885"><html>“This council came only one vote away from defunding our police last year.  One vote.  Crime is skyrocketing.  Murders are up citywide.  We have the highest homicides when compared to our surrounding cities.  Violent crimes have increased exponentially.  People are being killed.  Our response time for emergency calls has increased, this is a troubling sign.  <br><br>There are only 1,096 patrol officers responding to calls for service for the entire city.  To break it down, there are 350 officers on each shift, divided among 118 patrol squads that must provide 24/7 coverage.  On an average day, it would be normal to have between 25 to 30 officers working per precinct, covering over 530 square miles of our city.  This is unacceptable.<br><br>We are 800 officers short and losing current officers to other cities.  No one wants to be a police officer in Phoenix, this crazy defund movement is to blame.  That anyone on this Council would seriously continue to try to cut police funding is just insane."​<br><br></html></div>
Statement from Councilman DiCiccio on Phoenix’s Next City Manager Council District 69/1/2021 7:00:00 PM from Councilman DiCiccio on Phoenix’s Next City Manager<div class="ExternalClass265FD4F290844D6790434B1BF0B6B6F3"><html>​“I am thrilled with the appointment of Jeff Barton as Phoenix's next City Manager. Jeff brings a background in leadership, a culture of accountability, transparency, and strong values.<br><br>Jeff has a track record that almost no one in government - anywhere, at any level - can match. His work on budget planning was always spot-on and his ability to accurately forecast future growth is unparalleled. His financial background has put Phoenix in great financial health while also achieving excellent bond ratings. <br><br>Jeff has developed innovative plans during the worst times for Phoenix. Under his leadership all levels of the city will have full accountability and transparency. <br><br>And his story – this is a guy who was raised by his grandmother and single mother in public housing in Pennsylvania. He is proof once again that talent and hard work can overcome any obstacle. He is an inspiration to our youth to achieve their full potential and pursue their goals, no matter their background. <br><br>Jeff Barton is the American Dream, and Phoenix is lucky to have a talented and highly skilled city manager leading us forward."<br></html></div>
Statement from Councilman DiCiccio on Today’s Policy Meeting Council District 68/24/2021 9:00:00 PM from Councilman DiCiccio on Today’s Policy Meeting<div class="ExternalClassA16A35B49F454E189EF965247E9D60EE"><html>​“While Phoenix is facing increased violent crime and slowed police response times, today the City Council debated a police “coin".<br><br>Did we debate an increase in violent crime? The shortage of 1,000 police officers? The need for more police to help protect our families? Nope.<br><br>This city needs a major reality check."<br><br></html></div>
