N.Y.C. Mayor Vows to Support Police Amid Rise in Violence

During a eulogy for Officer Jason Rivera, who was shot and killed last week, Mayor Eric Adams pledged to work with other officials to reinforce New York City’s police department.

And every day when I see New Yorkers, they say, “Thank the men and women of the New York City Police Department,” and I want to thank you. I want to thank you for what you do every day. You stand in the gap of safety. And these two fine men watered the tree of safety that allows us to sit under its shade from the hot sun of violence. You play a vital role in the prosperity of this city. And today is a mourning for all of you. The tragic death of your brother in blue uniform is a stark reminder of what is on the line every day, and I’m here sitting next to the governor, the state of New York, and Senator Chuck Schumer and other electeds. We are committed to giving you the resources to do your jobs, and ensure that we can keep the people of this city safe.
