In 2014, Mayor Tim Flynn and the Oxnard City Council formally recognized October 13th as "Community Safety and Anti-Violence Day" for the next five consecutive years. This was done in remembrance of Alfonso Limon, Jr. who was tragically killed on October 13, 2012. The proclamation language for this year's Community Safety and Anti-Violence Day is listed below:

Whereas, the safety of our community depends on how we keep our homes, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces and communities secure from violence; and
Whereas, crime and fear of crime destroys trust in others and in civil institutions, threatening the community's health, prosperity and quality of life; and
Whereas, the City of Oxnard recognizes that the untimely death of Alfonso Limon, Jr., an innocent bystander, on October 13, 2012, was a tragedy not only for the Limon family but the community as a whole; and
Whereas, the City of Oxnard will formally recognize October 13th as "Community Safety and Anti-Violence Day" for the next five consecutive years, in honor of the tragic death of Alfonso Limon, Jr.
Now Therefore, the City Council of the City of Oxnard does hereby proclaim October 13, 2015 as:
"Community Safety and Anti-Violence Day"
In the City of Oxnard and urge all community members, governmental agencies, public and private institutions and businesses to commit to work together to make our city safer, stronger and to prevent violence in our community.
In Witness Thereof, I, Tim Flynn, Mayor of the City of Oxnard, on behalf of the entire City Council have hereunto set my hand and cause the Great Seal of the City of Oxnard to be affixed in this 13th day of October, 2015.
