KEEPING NASHVILLIANS SAFE
Just over a month after taking office, David Briley had his toughest day as Mayor: the day of the Nashville Waffle House shooting. Deeply moved by this experience, Mayor Briley has committed to doing whatever it takes to keep Nashvillians safe from gun violence.
Launching Project Safe Nashville - This initiative brings together law enforcement agencies at all levels to reduce violent crime by focusing on rapidly collecting, analyzing, and investigating gun-crime evidence.
Improving the pay for police officers - The Mayor has recommended increasing the starting pay for Metro officers, so we can pay officers competitively for the tough and challenging work they do.
Involving citizens in keeping Nashville safe - By implementing the Community Oversight Board and working for more community policing, the Mayor is working to forge new partnerships between Nashville's citizens and our law enforcement.
