City seeks input on Savannah public safety issues

Is there a public safety issue in Savannah that you’re really worried about?

Maybe you believe police chases shouldn’t happen near schools or densely populated residential areas like the one through East Savannah & Ardsley Park at school dismissal time on Wed. May 1? Or maybe you’re worried about our city’s home burglary problem? Or maybe you want the mayor & city council to do more to curb gun violence in Savannah & to work to extend background checks to online and private gun purchases as well as gun show sales?

Here’s your chance to make your case.

This week the City of Savannah is reaching out its citizens for their thoughts and ideas on public safety.

Residents can share their input in a special online form available at through noon on Friday, May 17th.

The comments will be compiled and presented to a special Public Safety Roundtable that will meet Monday, May 20, at 2 p.m. in the Savannah Civic Center. The Roundtable will be comprised of the top elected and appointed officials representing the major entities that touch public safety, including law enforcement, the courts, probation and parole, education, city and county governments, and various nonprofits and the faith-based community.

The goal of the Roundtable will be to identify key issues impacting public safety in our community, and begin a process that will create an action plan to make our community safer. The Roundtable wants to hear from the public on this matter, and has set up the online form to solicit input.
