We the residents of Oakland deserve to have clean and safe environment. Illegal Dumping is happening in all areas of Oakland; in residential areas, parks, lakes, you name it and it's there. Dumping usually happens in secluded neighborhoods. I believe a good solution to this issue would be to increase police patrols in areas with high dumping rates, as well as increasing the fine people would get for committing this crime. Doing this would help deter offenders and bring up the sanitation of Oakland. 

Illegal dumping can bring forth many health dangers. These dangers could be life changing even more so to a young child. Getting a simple prick from a needle could give you a serious infection. The chances may be slim but why have the risk there. There's also diseases brought forth through rodents and insect that would be attracted to these piles. 

Sincerely,

           Bill Clinton Luna
