"Against the backdrop of Police Department statistics showing falling crime, these attacks are shocking and saddening," Assemblyman Herman D. Farrell, Jr. said. "On behalf of the people of Northern Manhattan, I urge the Mayor to make permanent the ‘temporary’ assignment of additional police officers to our neighborhoods, which have a large number of parks which must be made and kept safe. I will work to assist neighborhood watch programs organized by the community to stop more of our friends and neighbors from becoming victims."
