Katie will always prioritize the safety of Orange County families. She knows from personal experience how trained and professional law enforcement can help families get the help they need, and she is committed to supporting the first responders who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
She introduced the Mental Health Justice Act to allow local governments to send trained mental health professionals instead of police when 911 is called to treat a person needing emergency mental health care. This bill would connect people in crisis with the resources they need and allow our police officers to dedicate their attention to law enforcement.
Katie is proud to support our first responders and has introduced bipartisan legislation to increase firefighter pay. These workers who protect our safety deserve fair compensation and adequate benefits. Delivering for our firefighters can reduce staffing shortages and reduce the harms and dangers of wildfires.
