Joint Statement from Phoenix City Councilmembers Sal DiCiccio and Michael Nowakowski, chair of the Public Safety and Veterans Subcommittee, Regarding the Diversion of Police Resources for ProtestsJoint Statement from Phoenix City Councilmembers Sal DiCiccio and Michael Nowakowski, chair of the Public Safety and Veterans Subcommittee, Regarding the Diversion of Police Resources for Protests<div class="ExternalClass81B32BB4440A4ACD9F9C39F6701384AA"><p>​“We have both expressed strong concerns about the serial killer plaguing our city as he continues to victimize our Hispanic and African-American communities. We have both raised concerns with the Phoenix Police Department about the amount of resources being devoted to these marches and protests when those resources should be focused on protecting all of our citizens.<br> <br> The Phoenix Police Department, through our conversations, has also acknowledged that the amount of time required for planning and follow-through on each of these protests may drain resources away from the serial killer investigation and public safety throughout our city.<br> <br> It is our hope that a more constructive way of dealing with the concerns of these individuals is found that would take into consideration the amount of resources that are being devoted to the public protests and the fact that there are other important issues facing our city.”</p></div>7/16/2016 10:00:00 PMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
