Hochul signs bill for Blue Alert system

Dec 19, 2022 12:45 pm

Mid-Hudson News reports that police officers in New York now have their own Blue Alert system to notify law enforcement agencies, the media, and the public about suspects who have killed, seriously injured, or pose an imminent threat to law enforcement. On Dec. 16 Gov. Kathy Hochul signed the legislation creating the Blue Alert system, which is similar to the AMBER Alerts for missing children. “We are taking a comprehensive approach towards protecting the individuals who serve and protect us, taking every measure we can to crack down on violent crime against law enforcement,” Hochul said. “New York is wholly committed to safeguarding our brothers and sisters in law enforcement and this new law will be crucial to creating safer communities and apprehending those who commit violent crimes against police officers.” Read the full story at Mid-Hudson News.
