This article in Patch covers NYJA’s letter signed by more than 350 Jewish leaders in New York, urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo to pass meaningful police reforms.
Acts of police violence we have witnessed in the streets of New York, Buffalo, and elsewhere in New York this past week demand that we shine the brightest possible light on the culture and actions of law enforcement in the state. We strongly support legislation that forms the rest of the SAFER NY Act and that will account for discriminatory policing through increased reporting practices and strengthening prosecutorial oversight of police misconduct.
