Public Safety

Corey believes that the protection of citizens is a government’s chief responsibility. That’s why he’s never compromised on public safety, making it a priority throughout his tenure as Chairman.

Corey spearheaded the nation’s toughest crackdown on criminal illegal immigrants. From these efforts, Prince William County law enforcement officers turned over more than 7,500 criminal illegal aliens to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

By upholding the law, Prince William County has had a 48.7% drop in violent crime and a reduction in overall crime.

As part of the county’s 2015 fiscal year budget, Corey led the effort to reinstate a police staffing plan that called for an additional 25 net new officers per year. The staffing plan was put on hold during the great recession but because of Corey’s commitment to public safety it was reinstated for this year.

In addition to adding police officers, Corey fought for a new full-time fire tanker truck and fire ladder truck for the Department of Fire and Rescue. These units will enhance crucial protection for the residents of Prince William County.
