RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (CitizenWire) — Edward Professional Advisors announces that the City of Compton has selected it to help create its own police department. The Mayor of the City of Compton says, “We are excited about the opportunity to regain local control of our police services. We are in the midst of a campaign to rebirth a new Compton. Having our own police department is part of the overall strategic plan to make Compton a better place to live and work.”
Dr. Paul Edward, founder of Edward Professional Advisors, says, “The Sheriff’s Department has done a great job during the past ten years in Compton, but research clearly shows that cities with strong community-based police departments are better places to live and work. The police-community relationship is crucial for quality law enforcement and we are excited to be working on this historic project.”
The opponents of Compton’s transition to local control of their police services say Compton will not be able to afford the costs that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department currently spends on the police services they provide for Compton.
Compton’s City Manager, Willie Norfleet, says, “Not only will we gain local control of our police services, but our efforts will cost the citizens of Compton less while providing top quality police services.”
“As one of the few African American owned consulting firms, it is an honor to be helping Compton improve its police services. Compton is a place of great importance to the African American community and it feels wonderful to be collaborating with the citizens of Compton to improve their safety and quality of life,” says Dr. Edward. Compton’s successful transition to locally controlled police services will not only be significant for this African American community but will serve at the blueprint for other communities around the world.
