Public Safety

We are fortunate that NYC is the safest big city in the country but there is a lot that the new City Council will have to address when it comes to oversight. Stop & Frisk as we know it must end, surveillance of New Yorkers based on religion is unacceptable, and the fact that we pay out almost half a billion dollars to settle lawsuits against the NYPD is unconscionable. Ken would seek to provide greater oversight of the NYPD, but he will also work to ensure that our hardworking law enforcement officials have the resources they need and are not burdened by gotcha politics. Even though crime is down, Ken believes that we should not continue cutting the number of cops on our streets.
