New York State Police To Increase Security During Jewish High Holidays

Sep 29, 2019

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has directed state police to increase security near synagogues and religious centers during the Jewish High Holidays. 

In a statement Saturday, the Democrat said he is directing police “out of an abundance of caution and following a number of appalling anti-Semitic incidents over the past year…”

The governor also recently directed the state police hate crimes task force to investigate graffiti found at Scarsdale High School in Westchester County.
