City Council Approves Property Crimes Task Force
Irvine, CA - Tonight, the Irvine City Council unanimously approved Vice Mayor Anthony Kuo's proposal to establish a Property Crimes Task Force.
The Property Crimes Task Force's will receive presentations from representatives of the Irvine Police Department and other outside organizations, and report its findings back to the City Council within four months.
"While Irvine has enjoyed the distinction of being named 'America’s Safest City,' for our size for 16 consecutive years. This designation, based on violent crime statistics compiled by the FBI, does not take property crimes like burglary and theft into account, and there's always room for improvement and additional partnerships," said Vice Mayor Kuo.
The Task Force will include Vice Mayor Kuo, Mayor Farrah N. Khan, as well as two renters, two homeowners, two retailer / restaurant representatives, and one property management representative from a Homeowners Association.
