COUNTY EXECUTIVE AND NASSAU COUNTY POLICE
OFFER HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS
Please Don’t Be a Victim
County Executive Laura Curran and Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick J. Ryder, along with the Police Department are taking affirmative steps to ensure the safety of the people of Nassau County during the upcoming holiday season. All of our regular marked and plainclothes patrols will be intensifying their coverage of shopping malls and commercial areas. The patrols will be augmented by our Mounted Unit, Bureau of Special Operations and POP Cops. Concurrently, dedicated patrols have been assigned to the major malls within the county, putting additional police officers at those locations during peak hours.
In addition to shopping safety, Nassau Police will also be on the lookout for drivers and occupants who are not complying with vehicle and traffic laws. This includes parking in Fire Lanes, children who are not in child safety seats or buckled in their seat. Police Officers will also be vigilant watching for drivers who are violating cell phone laws including text messaging, driving while intoxicated on all roads in Nassau. Handicapped parking violations will be strictly enforced. Parking in handicapped spaces are reserved for those with visible permits.
