New effort to curb recent spike in violent crimes against police officers
There's a new effort to curb the recent spike in violent crimes against police officers.
Members of the Suffolk PBA were joined by local and state officials Wednesday in Brentwood.
They are demanding an overhaul of new proposed crimes law.
It comes as New York City has seen a 177% increase in shootings along with a number of attacks against police, including one in Brooklyn that saw one officer stabbed and two others shot.
The group's proposals include penalties for individuals who interfere with or harm a police officer while on duty.
