*Constituent Services are also available Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm, in Senator Serrano's District Office at 157 East 104th Street.*
During the April 21 RIRA Public Safety March & Rally, Senator Serrano said:
... There is a major breakdown between the residents and Public Safety. There are incidents which obviously must be dealt with and investigated. But even more importantly, the fact that there is not a level of dialogue between Public Safety and the residents in a very constructive way, you then have a community which is less safe...
and urged passage of NY State legislation to create a Civilian Police Review Board which would include the Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department.
