While overall crime is down in New York City, felony assault and burglary is still climbing according to CompStat. To the thousands of New York men, women, and children living in City Council District 4, that is not acceptable.
As a Police Officer Liaison, Rebecca Harary believes all New Yorkers have the right to live in safe neighborhoods, with a police force that is equipped to handle any crime, day or night.
In February, New Yorkers were promised by our Mayor that all NYPD officers would be wearing body cams by 2019. That was good news for New Yorkers, until the scandal erupted. To date, not a single officer in blue is wearing any body cam equipment.
Why? NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer has placed the $6.4 million contract under investigation for claims made by a competitor of the body cam equipment. This delay is unfair, and places many New Yorkers at risk. While our elected officials play cat and mouse, New Yorkers suffer the consequences. Let’s Stop De Blasio from any further delays. Body Cams are good for New Yorkers, and add a higher level of safety for our men in blue.
When elected, Rebecca Harary will continue to demonstrate her great respect for the NYPD, and will work to decrease crime in all areas by making crime prevention and officer safety a top priority.
