Kissimmee City Commission Candidate Andrew Jeng Rolls Out Public Safety Agenda

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Kissimmee City Commission, Seat 2 candidate Andrew Jeng has rolled out his public safety agenda. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) member and former police lieutenant reunited with thousands of his fellow law enforcement officers during the 2018 IACP Conference, which ran from October 3-9 at the Orange County Convention Center, and came away with an even stronger sense of service to the people of Kissimmee. Jeng’s website outlines his initial priorities for building a stronger, safer Kissimmee.

Andrew Jeng’s public safety agenda includes:

  • Work with the public and private sectors to proactively address mental health
  • Create a Citizens’ Police Review Board to give Kissimmee residents a voice concerning Kissimmee Police Department’s Internal Affairs investigations and in reviewing procedures and regulations pertaining to the use of force and police conduct toward citizens
  • Engage with county, state and federal partners to tackle school safety
  • Invest in Kissimmee’s communities
  • Educate and empower Kissimmee youth

Jeng works regularly with law enforcement, annually bringing Chinese law enforcement officers to Central Florida to receive training, which is what garnered him Orange County Mayor-elect Sheriff Jerry Demings‘ endorsement. “I am elated that [Andrew] has chosen to run for public office,” Sheriff Demings said in the video. “I believe he will be a great commissioner in the City of Kissimmee.”

Jeng has been working toward his goals in Kissimmee in collaboration with various nonprofit organizations and on advisory boards for over a decade. “It was great to reunite with and learn from fellow law enforcement officers from here in Florida and all around the world this past weekend and this week,” said Jeng. “It’s always invigorating to exchange ideas on how to make our communities stronger and safer, and I can’t wait to bring these ideas to City Hall.”

Andrew Jeng is running against Felix Ortiz for Kissimmee City Commissioner, Seat 2 in the November 6
