Sen. Schneiderman At Press Conference Honoring Law Enforcement Officials For Preventing Riverdale Terrorist Plot

May 26, 2009

Today we honored the extraordinary men and women of the New York Police Department, the New York State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force,  the New York Air National Guard, the Newburgh Police Department and the New Windsor Police Departments for their work in averting a potential terrorist attack in Riverdale. Although we will never let down our guard in the fight against terrorism, we can breathe a little easier knowing that our local, state and federal law enforcement agents are working in coordination and getting the job done. It is an absolute honor to recognize them today for protecting our communities and religious institutions from homeland security threats.
