Blakeman signs executive order he says will shed led light on negative effects of bail reform
Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman has signed an executive order he says will shed light on the effect bail reform has had on the community.
Blakeman says it will allow residents to learn more about the potential threat these laws are to their safety.
"As I have said repeatedly, judges should have the sole discretion to determine if someone is a danger to the community or a flight risk," says Blakeman.
The order is part of Blakeman's continued call to fully repeal the cashless bail laws that were passed by the Legislature two years ago.
It comes amid a recent uptick in crime in Nassau.
