Dear PBA Member,

I’m writing with an urgent call to action for all PBA members and our families. 

With only a few days left in the Albany legislative session, state lawmakers are looking to pass sweeping changes to the state’s standard for the use of force by police officers.

In the PBA’s view, this “Police Stand Down Act” will make it virtually impossible for police officers to quickly, safely and legally prevent and terminate acts of violence directed at the public or arrest a resisting suspect. The bill would open the door for a criminal investigation every time a police officer uses reasonable force to stop a threat and/or take a suspect into custody.

To fight back against this legislation, the PBA and police unions across the state are asking New Yorkers to email their state legislators to oppose the bill. With just a few clicks on the PBA website, you can email your local representatives and every single legislator to urge them to VOTE NO on S.6615/A.7835.
 The legislative session ends June 10, so there is no time to waste. Please contact your legislators today, and urge your family and friends to do the same.

Fraternally,

Pat Lynch
President
