Police commissioner: ‘You are not going to threaten a cop in this county’

Nassau County officers double-up while on duty

Share

MINEOLA — Fifty arrests were made in Nassau County last week after an MS-13 threat advised its members to kill a police officer. Following the threat, police commissioner Patrick Ryder said that the area was filled with 150 cops with aided support from the Department of Homeland Security.

Nassau County law enforcement has also required that all police cars have at least two officers in them during time of duty. Officers will remain doubled-up until the individual who made the threat is arrested.

In the meantime, Ryder says that the community is actively supporting the police in order to make the area safer.
