Violence is never the answer. <br><br>In light of today's incident, and other incidents around the country, effective immediately, Phoenix Police will have two officers patrolling together at all times. I stand with Chief Williams on this decision, to ensure our brave officers have proper back-up. <br><br>I am also thankful that the court security officer who was shot at, was not seriously injured. He is in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery."​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7

This decision allows us to ensure that proper safety protocols are in place when our fields are being used, which is not happening in many of our parks today. It also provides us the opportunity to allocate fields in a fair and equitable way for our residents.<br><br>When the fields reopen, staff will be able to work with park users to ensure proper safety protocols are being followed so that we can continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Reopening these fields is also a win for families needing to get out of their homes for some fresh air, in a setting where they can feel safe. As a father of six during this pandemic, I truly understand the value of this."​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7
Councilman Nowakowski Reminds Residents it's Illegal to Tether Pets in Extreme Weather https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-7/1464City Council District 78/21/2020 12:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1464/Newsroom_Council_News_07.jpgCouncilman Nowakowski Reminds Residents it's Illegal to Tether Pets in Extreme Weather <div class="ExternalClass6F8B0726A5584DDBBED66557A991A2BD"><html>​​As the temperature continues to exceed 100 degrees in Phoenix, Councilman Michael Nowakowski is reminding residents it's against the law and inhumane to tether dogs outside. <br><br>The ordinance, approved by the Phoenix City Council in 2016, outlaws restraining a dog outside using a restraint that unreasonably limits the dog's movement during extreme weather conditions, when the outdoor temperature is below 32 degrees or above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, when a heat advisory has been issued or when a monsoon, hurricane, tropical-storm, dust-storm or tornado warning has been issued. <br><br>“Dogs are man's best friend and must be protected against the cruel practice of tethering, especially during these extreme summer temperatures," said Councilman Michael Nowakowski. “A restraint limits movement and has the potential to put dogs in an unsafe condition, without access to shelter, food and water. This ordinance is in place to help stop the abuse and support our partners at the Arizona Humane Society."<br><br>In 2016, Councilman Nowakowski and Councilwoman Thelda Williams co-chaired the Animal Cruelty Task Force. As a result of their efforts, the City Council approved more clearly defined language related to animal cruelty which strengthened the city ordinance. Funds were also raised to create "tool kits" for Police to safely take animal victims of abuse into custody, and First Responders continue to be trained to deal with animal cruelty issues. <br><br>Anyone found responsible for a first offense of the ordinance would be subject to a fine. Subsequent violations are a Class One misdemeanor with increasing fines and jail time. <br><br>To report animal abuse or an animal in distress, contact:<br><ul><li>City of Phoenix Crime Stop at 602-262-6151</li><li>Maricopa County Sheriff's Office at 602-876-1681</li><li>Arizona Humane Society at 602-997-7585, ext. 2073​​<br></li></ul></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7
