Oakland Police Chief: Crime Is Out Of Control, The City Council's Response Is Less Policing

|

Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong spoke out after the city council voted to cut his department's budget amid a surge in violent crime.

"We can see clearly that crime is out of control in the city of Oakland, and our response was for less police resources," he stated.


CHIEF LERONNE ARMSTRONG: Saturday night, I went out to a scene of a young man that lost his life and a lady yelled out the window, 'do something about it.'

Without the resources, it makes it challenging to make Oakland safe. And more families find themselves dealing with trauma. I hope we can put politics aside and put public safety first.
