Jose Arreola: Build community safety through action

Salinas and CASP Community Safety Manager Jose Arreola“I want our community members to understand that they are the most important actors in making positive change,” says Jose Arreola, the recently appointed Community Safety Manager for CASP and the City of Salinas.
