BP ADAMS, STATE SENATOR SQUADRON, & ASSEMBLYMEMBER LENTOL TO INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO RAISE PENALTIES OF TRESPASSING HIGH-PROFILE STRUCTURES

BROOKLYN – In response to the third trespassing incident on the Brooklyn Bridge in four months, today, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, State Senator Daniel Squadron, and Assemblymember Joseph Lentol announced state legislation that would raise the penalties for trespassing on critical infrastructure. This comes two days following the third security breach of the Brooklyn Bridge since July, this time by a 23-year-old French tourist. This legislation would fill a gap in current state law, as well as complement a proposal introduced earlier this year by U.S. Senator Charles Schumer that would make it a federal crime to trespass on critical infrastructure with the intent to commit a crime.
