Trudy believes that public safety is a fundamental right for all Missourians. Our communities can’t flourish with skyrocketing crime. In the U.S. Senate, Trudy will support robust funding for law enforcement and first responders to crack down on violent crime, conduct long term investigations into drug trafficking, and promote community-oriented policing programs. Trudy is a fierce advocate for victims of crime and will vigilantly support the rights of survivors in the criminal justice process. Trudy also knows the power of treatment courts in lowering recidivism and will invest in funding to expand the number of treatment courts available across the country.
