Here in Millcreek, our police department works in partnership with our community. They strive to provide the highest quality law enforcement services to minimize crime and ensure a safe quality of life for our residents. We can also see that along with criminal matters the police currently deal with calls about mental illness, homelessness, domestic disputes, and other social crises. These issues require special training, resources, and social workers. The city council can be part of the solution by addressing social as well as criminal issues in Millcreek. By doing this, we can better ensure a safer and more welcoming community.
