Vallejo City Council Declaration of Emergency
Damaging to Public Safety
Vallejo, CA – The declaration of an emergency will do nothing to improve the safety and security of Vallejo residents, businesses, and visitors. Instead, it will result in more officers leaving the Department for better working conditions, a stable working environment, and where their efforts are appreciated.
Today we remember the sacrifice Vallejo Police Officer James Capoot made while serving and protecting the safety of the residents of Vallejo. Jim was murdered by a bank robber he was chasing in 2011. That criminal was ultimately arrested and convicted. Please take a moment to reflect on Jim’s life and his family today, as well all the other officers that have been killed in the service to their community.
