Security for Ocean Beach Schools

$915 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 5 months
It's sad that it's come to this. The increase in drug-addicted and mentally ill transients in our community has led to an increase in the number of indecent exposure incidents happening around our beloved Ocean Beach Elementary School. The San Diego Police Department has been underfunded for years, and simply does not have the manpower to properly patrol the area. That is why I am asking the Ocean Beach community to come together and donate funds to secure a private security company that would primarily be focused on policing the area around the OB Elementary School and the OB Library. Please donate whatever you can - if every person in our neighborhood gave just $5, we would have enough to hire a security prescence to keep our children and residents safer.  All funds will go directly to the OBE non-profit, "Catch the Wave" and are therefore tax-deductible.  OB is a strong and closely-knit community, and I have faith that if we work together, we can get this done! 

Thank you so much for your support.

Thank you to all our supporters! After interviewing several security companies with experience in school security, I just wanted to share that cost estimate for an unarmed officer is averaging at $30.00 per hour. Also, to address some concerns from parents - security personnel will be stationed outside of the school, not on campus. Thank you!!
