Short-Term Strategies, Long-Term Solutions: Improving Public Safety in Oakland –  Mayor Jean Quan and the City of Oakland will host the next in a series of town hall meetings seeking input from neighborhoods across the city on public safety priorities to incorporate into a comprehensive crime reduction and suppression strategic plan.
