The NYPD may be forced to cut back on its federally funded Counterterrorism Officers Program.
The program was developed in 2011, and it’s been an incredible resource for stopping terror attacks in New York City, but the program is subsidized by the federal government. The Obama administration recently proposed cutting nearly 50 percent of anti-terror funding for New York.
Members of NYPD have told DennisMichaelLynch.com they are “highly concerned.” One high ranking officer said, “They’ll cut back on these guys’ overtime, and NYC will be left wide open. These guys have our backs.” Another police officer said, “With the summer approaching, and large crowds forming on a daily basis at Yankee and Mets games, we are so very vulnerable.”
