Re-Elect Sheriff David Livingston

EXPERIENCE THAT KEEPS CONTRA COSTA FAMILIES SAFE!

As your Sheriff, I have worked diligently to lower crime and keep our neighborhoods safe. I have over 34 years in law enforcement, serving as Chief of Police in Concord and Pleasant Hill before being elected Sheriff

More deputies in our neighborhoods

I increased the number of deputies providing care and supervision to our mental health incarcerated population. I am also fighting for even more funding to increase the number of deputies dedicated to patrolling our neighborhoods thus reducing response times and enhancing policing services across the county.

Addressing theft and robbery

I have zero tolerance for violent crimes, robbery, and theft crimes. We will aggressively investigate and arrest those who steal from others or businesses – whether alone or in groups.

Improved emergency response times

When first elected, I committed to improve how we handle 911 emergency calls. We shaved minutes off response times which is critical in an emergency.

Transparency

Transparency is key in continuing to build strong relationships with the community we serve. I have sought funding for body worn cameras for over five years. Now, with the county's half-cent sales tax, I was able to secure over one million dollars per year for body worn cameras for our nearly 800 deputy sheriffs, in-car video equipment and new staff to provide responses to public records requests.

Alternatives to Mental Health Response

I support alternatives to a police response to mental health calls. That's why I am partnering with the San Ramon Valley Fire Department and County Mental Health to design and implement alternatives -- reserving police response for the most serious or violent calls. I also fought for funding to set up additional response teams to provide critical ongoing mental health services, known as "Mental Health Evaluation Teams."
