Queens, NY, August 8, 2012 – Last night, as I traveled throughout my district’s police precincts on National Night Out, it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves and showing great appreciation for the efforts of our law enforcement personnel.

I commend the NYPD and Resorts World for working collaboratively to identify and apprehend the suspect relating to the June 29, 2012 robbery at the casino.
