 Senator Marie Alvarado-Gil to Host First Quarterly Public Safety Roundtable with Law Enforcement in Senate District 4

SACRAMENTO – Senator Marie Alvarado-Gil (D-Jackson) is announcing the launch of her quarterly public safety roundtable, scheduled to take place virtually on Tuesday, July 2. This significant event will bring together all 13 sheriffs and district attorneys from across Senate District 4, collectively representing nearly 25% of the state’s law enforcement leadership. This distinguished group is poised to be the leading voice in public safety and crime prevention.

The primary focus of this first roundtable will be addressing the pressing issue of mountain lion attacks and other wildlife-related incidents. Recent attacks, including the tragic mauling of 21-year-old Taylen Brooks by a mountain lion in El Dorado County in March, have raised concerns among constituents, and Senator Alvarado-Gil is committed to collaborating with law enforcement to develop effective strategies to ensure public safety.

In addition to wildlife attacks, the roundtable will serve as a platform for discussing other critical public safety topics, including:

  • The fentanyl crisis
  • Border security issues
  • Illegal cannabis cultivation
  • The placement and management of sexually violent predators

Senator Alvarado-Gil stated, “Public safety is a top priority for our communities. By bringing together our district’s sheriffs and district attorneys, we are building strong relationships and developing real strategies to address the challenges we face. I look forward to working alongside these dedicated law enforcement professionals to ensure the safety of our residents.”

The roundtable will provide an opportunity for open dialogue and the exchange of ideas, with the goal of strengthening public safety measures across Senate District 4, and California as a whole.

 Senator Alvarado-Gil represents the 4th Senate District including the Counties of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Mono, Nevada, Placer, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne.
