We made our choice to reside here for various reasons, but particularly I’m certain we all had a sense of security in mind. One thing I learned in my military service of 24 years was to expect what I would tolerate from both my Soldiers and my leadership. They are one in the same as they both foster whether there will be success or failure.
Tolerance of crime statistics being either high or low based on demographics is a false sense of security. As I mentioned in an email to some fellow residents, would one murder in Sierra Canyon by break in be acceptable to our tax paying community ? I will not insult any of your intelligence. As a whole, we as a community generate a large revenue for both the county and city. We deserve the very best of what law enforcement can put in place. If you are willing to accept that as a whole that we are low on the bar of crime in Reno, then as I’ve always said, what an old boss use to say to me as a Quality Manager in Aerospace manufacturing, you deserve what you will tolerate. We need representation at the next city council that they justify no police presence in our community based on the revenue generated by our taxes and buying power.
Again, we deserve what we will tolerate !
