Amid this unprecedented global health crises, Merced County is focused on continuing to protect the safety, health and well-being of all of the local communities we serve. On a 24/7 basis, we are continuing to coordinate with federal, state and local partners to further prepare our region for future incidents and the long-term effects of this situation. Visit countyofmerced.com/coronavirus for local up-to-date information.
Public safety is a top priority for the County and local residents, as a recent community survey shows. In today’s unprecedented environment, it’s more important than ever to maintain public safety in Merced County. Unfunded state mandates continue to put more offenders back into our neighborhoods and there is statewide conversation about local jail facilities being potentially dangerous environments for the spread of illness.
As we continue to fight this pandemic, the important work of addressing your priorities and keeping you safe continues. Please join the conversation on priorities your neighbors have already identified, by providing your feedback on our brief survey that will help the County plan moving forward.
