Discuss Public Safety with Residents and Law Enforcement
State Rep. Sam Yingling (D-Grayslake) will discuss legislation designed to keep suburban communities safe, and listen to the concerns of local residents and law enforcement officials at a public safety roundtable, this month.
“The trust people have placed in me to help keep our communities safe is a charge I take very seriously,” Yingling said. “Ensuring our communities remain a safe place to live, work and raise a family is a responsibility shared by elected officials, law enforcement and community members alike. The purpose of this meeting is to bring everyone to the table, and begin an ongoing discussion.”
The public safety roundtable will be held on Monday, March 25, from noon until 1 p.m. in Yingling’s full-time constituent service office, located at 20 W. North Street, in Hainesville. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch. Yingling will listen to input from community members and law enforcement officials, and discuss ideas for new legislative priorities for public safety. Additionally, Yingling will discuss legislation he introduced to address the growing danger of heroin abuse in suburban schools and communities, and a bill he is sponsoring to engage the families of convicted gang members in community-based violence prevention efforts.
“By bringing people together in the interest of public safety, the bills I’m sponsoring are two important steps in protecting our children and our communities,” Yingling said. “By sitting down with community members, local leaders and law enforcement officials to the table to discuss the needs of our neighborhoods, and listen to each other’s concerns, this meeting continues that effort of combatting crime by uniting our community.”
