Choices, Actions, Relationships and Emotions
Crime is systemic, institutional and culturally influenced. To address the social and capitalistic aspects in each neighborhood. I plan to meet and work with community leaders, in order to develop an implement strategic objectives to stabilize neighborhoods in an effective way, of reducing crime and increase growth though our district. We must first have the courage to confront our problems, and the best way is respectable engagement. Which increases the visibility and understanding of issues, that empowers citizens to make sound decisions that will affect their lives, their homes, and their city.
After building a deeper, stronger and more trusting empathetic relationship between the existing neighborhoods and the Mobile Police Department. To advocate for more police-community combine programs focused on stronger relationships. To establish a true sense of trust, to form an effective dialogue of communication and expectation between the two. Simply. What are the police asking for? and, What are our constituents asking for? Where can we meet in the middle? Relationships do matter, and communication is one of the most important skills in any relationship. We need to focus more on changing the conditions that draw people into these areas an acts of criminal behavior.
Returning to take aggressive actions to address neglected and abandoned properties, will physically, socially, and revitalize our neighborhoods. With constant patrolling officers, as skilled observers to deter and reducing crime is simultaneously building a relationship on respect for each other. Respect is the key. Another key appears to be community respected engagement, along with community respected policing to reducing crime. It is a necessity to building an empathetic relationship on trust, this implements a multi-faceted approach that includes more officers on the streets for greater success to increase their presence as friend not foe, can bring several benefits to a neighborhood.
Eagerly addressing the underlying issues to improve and expand the existing infrastructure with streetlights, sidewalks, crosswalks, and biking trails, in all areas of the district. This can have a dramatic effect on the way we live our daily lives. Statistically every officer lives in our neighborhoods and is a integral part of our community. This will take a holistic approach by respecting the entire community as a whole. This is not just a police matter for law enforcement to resolve. But the community as stakeholders plays a crucial part as well. A leader who listen attentively, and ready to serve. Wants to ensure we have a City Council that is proactively engages its citizens to give them a voice. A voice to be heard, to make a positive impact on the entire city.
THE BIOGRAPHY OF
Allan J. Barnes
Allan J. Barnes is a fifth generation native of Mobile, Alabama and 1974 graduate of John S. Shaw High School. This is where Mr. Barnes became vested in assuring that all students (persons) were represented fairly and was given an education in a non-discriminatory environment as possible. He along with other students in the art department worked diligently to create a mascot that could represent the entire school body, which was changed from a Rebel to the Eagle. This mascot was later erected after his graduation. Mr. Barnes has always had a nature to lead and nurture those that had a desire to change. Barnes became active in his community and school through advocating against injustices. Mr. Barnes moved away from Alabama but returned and has spent years preparing himself in the criminal Justice to enter training as an officer.
Mr. Barnes After graduating from Tuscaloosa Law Enforcement Academy Mr. Barnes serviced as a law enforcement officer with four different agencies, over ten years of service before retiring, and I will remember that my calling. Deep within me, as a police officer is an honorable one, but should never set me apart from society or the community I protect and serve. I have been granted a great privilege to work with such a diversity group of people in law enforcement and on the street, from all walks of life. Law enforcement officers are the only community servants in continual touch with the communities they serve. It is with that kind of compassion and sense of community responsibility, that he considers the prospect of serving once again. Mr. Barnes sensibilities about the quality of life, are also at work when no one’s looking.
Mr. Barnes shifted from protecting and serving the public. to protecting and serving his 95-year-old widowed mother. he took on the role of head of household for a number of years, becoming her primary caretaker and she is doing well. She is now faced with challenges as she gets older. especially the isolation and loneliness of not outliving family and friends, but this pandemic. Ironically, it’s the son who has sacrificed his career to take the time to care for his ageing mother. His other siblings help from time to time, but have their own families. Mr. Barnes is okay with that, because he had fun when I was young scuba diving, skydiving, repelling, and that special training to protect and serve you the citizen. My mom, and I welcome that role in our family. And I am ready to be of service to our community.
my mom is happy that I’m here, and I do what I can to make sure that she sense, and feels, that loving son to mother relationship, that she instilled in me at a early age."

Barnes consider running for Mobile City Council District 7
.......Barnes believes that we need new leadership within the City Council to address inequities and make District 7 accessible for everyone
2. Barnes sensibilities about the quality of life are also at work when no one’s looking. His 95-year-old mother is good but is also faced with challenges as she gets older, especially the isolation and loneliness of not outliving family and friends, but this pandemic. Ironically, it’s the son who has sacrificed his career to take the time to care for her while his other siblings help from time to time, but care for their own, an families.
I’m okay with that because I had my fun time when I was young scuba diving skydiving, repelling, and that special training to protect and serve you the citizens. My mother, and I welcome that role in our family. And my mom is happy that I’m here, and I do what I can to make sure that she sense, and fees, that loving son to mother relationship, that she instilled in me at a early age. And now its time to once again protect and serve, but in different role.
Barnes accepts his responsibility not as a burden but as the ability to give a gift. “It’s my role,” he says. “It’s my time now to step up, and care for family and I’m happy that I could bring a smile to her life today.”
It is with that kind of compassion and sense of community responsibility that he considers both his job at LEA and the prospect of serving on the Mobile City Council.
.......Barnes considers running for office....... “just another layer on everything else I do,” he says. “So it’s going to put a lot of energy into my life.
......And to add to an already crowded life, Barnes is dedicated to the Alabama Democratic Party with his single-minded loyalty endorsing and representing the very diverse Assembly of Alabama.......
.......Young people are the people that will help us build back better. Barnes wants young people to step up to leadership and take their rightful place. To step up and serve he will have the ability provide youth of any age with the skills to develop into effective and respected leaders within the City, County, and State of Alabama .
.......As a leader who listens attentively and ready to serve. It’s very important not only to create a environment but to develop your leadership skills and to become an advocate for change in your neighborhoods, Barnes says. Don’t be afraid to think that you can’t step up to be a commissioner or elected official. Run for office with character have fun with it, but do it with honesty and integrity and be that person that’s willing to work with other leaders to make a positive difference.......

but she is only here for a loves. I’m providing that good mental health that she needs sometimes, that's why she sons why I’m running: I want to be an example of unification to all.
I would work collaboratively to address these additional priorities. To spur neighborhood and police collaboration. when you collaborate, you cooperate. To join forces and begin brainstorming ideas, to focus on even assigning responsibility, for who will do what
