Public safety is a crucial component to any city desiring safe community, quality infrastructure, a strong local economy and a high quality of life. The formation of the North Orange County Public Safety Task Force serves the City of Stanton along with the cities of Brea, Placentia, Fullerton, Anaheim and Buena Park to ensure regional collaborative efforts promoting healthy and viable communities. The funding to the Task Force directly aligns itself to these aspects of public safety in the City of Stanton and regionally allowing for opportunities to design a range of programs, services and activities aimed to reduce violence in our schools and build a system of care in the issues surrounding homelessness.
