Levi has talked about this issue with numerous police officers, former chiefs, many citizens, and has heard the remarks made by Judge James Sherron. He agrees with them whole heartedly when they all have told him that we need to keep our jail open. Levi believes that our officers time is best spent watching our streets, not driving prisoners to the Butler County Jail in Hamilton, waiting for them to be processed, and then driving back.
Levi is a proud supporter of our police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, and EMTs! These brave men and women are the front lines on our war against the opioids epidemic. Thanks to their tireless efforts our overdose rates have dropped significantly over the years.They are doing an amazing job, but there is still more work to be done. Levi looks forward to working directly with our first responders, because he believes the best people to tell him about the hurdles our Police Department and Fire Department are facing are the men and women of those departments. He will do this by periodically going on ride alongs with our first responders, not to check up on them, but to check in with them and witness the things they deal with on a day to day basis, so that he can best advocate for the policies that will help clear the hurdles they face in keeping us safe and keeping drugs off our streets.
