Fresno mayoral candidates have differing views about how to increase the city’s police force. On Monday, Oct. 24, Lee Brand called for a statewide ballot initiative that would generate more money for understaffed law enforcement departments. In response, Henry R. Perea said that if residents want an increase in officers immediately, the realistic solution is to reassign current officers into patrol duty and work with other law enforcement agencies, such as the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, to brainstorm new ways of sharing patrol duties.
