DATE : MONDAYJUNE 2, 2014
PLACE: UNIONDALE PUBLIC LIBRARY, LOWER LEVEL MEETING ROOM
SPEAKER: ACTING POLICE COMMISSIONER THOMAS KRUMPTER
TOPIC: A highly decorated gang unit responsible for making scores of felony arrests, gun recoveries and drug busts in our neighborhood has recently abruptly been reassigned to regular patrol duty. The 12 transferred cops made up the department's Gang Abatement Program, formed more than a decade
ago, which does plainclothes anti-crime operations in Uniondale, Hempstead and other nearby towns. The officers are among the most knowledgeable about daily street-level gangs. Among the other plainclothes officers reassigned were cops from the Problem Oriented Policing unit, which work closely with residents on crime prevention. These officers are an integral part of our community.
We are against this decision as it is going to have an adverse affect on public safety in our community. This is absolutely unacceptable, and the decision must be reversed immediately.
PLEASE ATTEND THE MEETING AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.
Refreshments will be served
