Every resident of Lee District deserves to feel safe in their homes, and in their communities, and Board of Supervisors plays a role in making that happen. Rodney believes that we need to adopt smart strategies for reintegrating those that have committed crimes, and paid their debt to society, back into our community.
Rodney supports the Diversion First efforts that are being implemented by the Fairfax County Police and Sheriff’s Office. He appreciates that the County understands that substance abuse and mental health issues lead to repeat incarceration, and should be treated to reduce recidivism, and lower costs.
Rodney will work with the Commonwealth’s Attorney to ensure equity in the criminal justice system, regardless of race, income or other determining factors, and work with the Sheriff’s office on initiatives like the STAR program, to help curb the harmful effects of the opoioid epidemic on our County.
