Legislation recently signed into law will dramatically impact our local community. These so-called bail reforms were rushed by New York State with virtually no input from law enforcement agencies or crime victims advocates. Already, there are numerous examples across the state of suspects who would be detained under current law, but by January 1, 2020, will be free to go. This creates serious safety concerns for our law abiding citizens and simply put, is a public safety nightmare. It is now more important than ever that we speak out and work together to halt the implementation of these 'reforms'. We must push for real measures that protect crime victims and hold criminals responsible for their actions.
