After Outbreak of Antisemitic Violence, NYPD Boosts Presence in Brooklyn


The NYPD presence in Brooklyn is being increased after a serious outbreak of antisemitic violence last week.

“Hate doesn’t have a home in our city,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “In light of recent antisemitic attacks, the NYPD will increase their presence in Boro Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg.”

“Anyone who terrorizes our Jewish community WILL face justice,” he added.

“In addition to heightened visibility, there will be increased visits to houses of worship and other critical areas in the community,” he said.

“Antisemitism is an attack on the values of our city — and we will confront it head-on,” the mayor added.
