"Protecting our schools, protecting our neighborhoods," said Mike Fedele.
These are some of Mike Fedele's top priorities as he continues his campaign for mayor. The republican candidate met with Stamford police Monday to talk public safety.
They discussed a little bit of everything. From school security to needs of the department.
"It's important to make sure our men and women in uniform, across all uniform services, have the tools, the training that they need to respond to a 21st century city and the demands that that brings," said Fedele.
Stamford is the 11th safest city in the country, and Fedele says he plans to keep it that way.
"We need to maintain that and get better. The way we do that is investing in our police department, our fire department and EMS. Investing in training, investing in equipment to make sure. If that goes away, people don't feel comfortable or safe in their city, you lose everything," said Fedele.
"I'd be interested in community policing, expanding community policing, by patrols, foot patrols. That kind of thing and more of a neighborhood kind of a view."
