Rosenthal secures funding for NYPD vehicles through state grant program

Assemblymember Daniel Rosenthal joined officers from the 107th Precinct this week for an unveiling of a brand new police van for the New York Police Department obtained through capital funding that Assemblymember Rosenthal was able to secure has hit the streets to serve and protect the Kew Gardens Hills, Pomonok and Fresh Meadows communities. 

The $125,000 funding for new police vehicles, which Rosenthal secured within the State and Municipal Facilities (SAM) grant program, will help to alleviate the growing logistical demand for the New York Police Department amid an alarming rise in crime to transport officers around the 107’s area of responsibility.

“Precincts around the city are stretched to their operational limits,” said Assemblymember Daniel Rosenthal (D-Kew Gardens Hills). “Both in manpower and logistically. While the brave men and women of the NYPD confront the crime epidemic that continues to afflict our city, I am proud to deliver this essential equipment for the 107 and its officers to better keep our families and communities safe.”
