As a former law enforcement officer, I am proud to have the support of the NYS Fraternal Order of Police. In Congress, I have led several efforts in support of our police force, such as introducing the National Blue Alert Act, which passed the House, and successfully passing an amendment to stop severe cuts to the COPS hiring program. In New York City, we are privileged to have the finest police force in the nation, and I will never back down from my commitment to fight on their behalf so that they continue to receive the support and resources they need on and off the job.
