PBA President's statement on the issue of homeless in the subway

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“Too many of our city's elected officials seem to be in denial about the impact of their public safety policies. They decry the resurgence of quality-of-life problems, then they pursue policies that discourage proactive policing of those issues. Whether it's ambiguity over the enforcement of subway rules or harmful legislation that attempts to micromanage searches and other police activities, New York City police officers are constantly saddled with the burden of fixing policy failures we had no hand in creating. Governor Cuomo is absolutely right: nobody should be sleeping in the subway, and New York City police officers play a role in preventing that from happening. We wish the rest of our elected leaders would support us in that effort.”
