PBA PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT ON
THE ASSASSINATION OF
POLICE OFFICER MIOSOTIS FAMILIA

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Police officer Miosotis Familia, the mother of three, gave her life protecting a neighborhood that had been plagued by gang gun violence.  Fully knowing the dangers that she faced, she suited up in uniform everyday and stood tall against those who threaten and terrorize the good folks of the Bronx.  As we mourn her death and support her family, friends and colleagues, we ask for your help.  Violence against police officers cannot stand.  When you see or hear someone making threats against NYC police officers you need to let us know, you need to be our eyes and ears.  Police officer Familia now joins the exclusive ranks of women who have heroically served and died in the line of duty.  We will keep her in our hearts and minds as we do all of the women and men who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the city they loved.”
