Advance Community-Based Policing

There is a gap between the Ward 7 community and law enforcement officers. Nate plans to enhance the functions of the Police Complaints Board (PCB) so that citizen complaints are better used to improve MPD recruitment, training, evaluation, discipline, and supervision of police officers. Nate supports substantive police reform that centers the priorities of the community and builds trust between law enforcement and community members.

Coordinating Violence Intervention Efforts

The strategy involves creating a task force to coordinate efforts across various offices and programs like the Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, Cure The Streets, and the Office of Gun Violence Protection. This task force will aim to focus on interrupting cycles of violence, particularly targeting those at the highest risk of violence involvement. Given the recent rise in violent crime committed by youth, Nate supports devising violence intervention efforts targeted directly toward young people

Reducing Gun Violence

The proliferation of guns in our community has contributed to the increase in violent crime fatalities that Ward 7 is currently experiencing. MPD should focus on gun crime rather than petty crime and intercept illegal gun transactions and use deterrence messaging to discourage young adults from obtaining their first firearm.
