Cracking Down on Crime
Joe Addabbo has been a strong supporter of the NYPD since his days on the City Council, and he continues to fight for resources for our law enforcement officers. Joe has voted to support common sense gun laws to protect children and help the police, and he has fought for tough new laws to keep dangerous sex offenders away from our families.
One of the new laws Joe helped pass keeps sex-offenders away from kids in public housing units, by requiring public housing authorities to receive monthly updates from law enforcement when Level 2 or 3 sex offenders move into a community. Dangerous sexual offenders are not allowed in taxpayer-subsidized housing, and Joe is working to make sure those laws are strictly enforced.
