Cracking Down on Crime

Joe has been a strong supporter of the NYPD since his days on the City Council, and he has continued to push for more resources for our law enforcement officers, in order to keep our families safe. Joe voted to increase the penalty for vehicular manslaughter, and fought for tougher laws to prohibit sex offenders from working with children.
Furthermore, Joe helped pass a law that aims to keep sex offenders away from children in public housing units, by issuing monthly updates to public housing authorities when Level 2 or 3 sex offenders move into a community. Sex offenders are banned from taxpayer-subsidized housing, and Joe is working to make sure these laws are strictly enforced
