PBA statement on criminal justice changes in NYS budget

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch:

“New Yorkers should pay close attention to the words Governor Hochul and the legislative leaders are using. Their priority is to make New Yorkers ‘feel safer,’ not to provide real public safety. Their proposed changes are political window dressing that won’t do much to change the reality on our streets. New York’s crime crisis requires comprehensive reforms that ensure swift and serious consequences for all violent criminals and repeat offenders. We need lawmakers to support and empower police officers — instead, they are getting ready to push their next slate of anti-police measures as soon as this weak budget passes. If New York’s leaders won’t get serious about public safety, hopefully New York voters will.”
