The dedication of police officers on Staten Island and across New York City over the last year has been outstanding, with Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of Staten Island and NYPD Deputy Chief Joseph Gulotta both singing the praises of our city’s law enforcement at a press conference this week. Malliotakis, in addition to showing support for the NYPD, has helped secure nearly $6 million in grants for the department over the past two years, including forensic equipment, protective gear, and license plate readers that can help aid in finding stolen cars. With her help, the department can continue to keep our streets safe.
Malliotakis is proud to be the only federal representative in Congress over the last two years to have secured funding for the NYPD. She has always been a champion for the NYPD and the other men and women in blue that keep New York City safe on a daily basis. National Police Week is an excellent time to show elected officials and the general public the important work that police officers do and how much we appreciate their efforts. As a conservative, Malliotakis is committed to ensuring that law enforcement officials have the tools and resources they need to do their job to the best of their ability.
In her speech, Malliotakis pointed to the trauma kits and forensic equipment the NYPD has received with her help. These supplies have been proven valuable in life-saving situations, including assisting gunshot and vehicle accident victims. Malliotakis has also requested funding for the NYPD to replace its older tasers and belt trauma kits. The congresswoman’s concern for the well-being of our law enforcement officials is refreshing, and her support has never wavered.
Gulotta noted an increase in auto-related crime on Staten Island, and revealed that the plate readers would be invaluable when it comes to identifying vehicles used in the commission of crimes. With Malliotakis’ help, the NYPD can continue to keep Staten Island and the rest of New York City safe.

In her opinion, this is just one small way we can show our law enforcement officials that we respect and appreciate the dangerous work they do on our behalf every single day. She is also committed to continuing to advocate for future grants for the NYPD to ensure that they always have the resources they need to get the job done.
This week is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate National Police Week and to show our support for the dedicated men and women of the NYPD, who put their lives on the line to keep us all safe.

While police supporters across the country observe National Police Week this year, the House will be voting on several pro-police pieces of legislation. These include a resolution of support for law enforcement and a condemnation of moves to defund or dismantle local law enforcement agencies. Other legislation up for a vote includes the Federal Law Enforcement Officer Service Weapon Purchase Act, which would provide access to retired equipment for precincts, and the POLICE Act, which would increase penalties for assaulting law enforcement officers.
Malliotakis and Gulotta agree that showing our police officers how much their work is valued is incredibly important. Not only does it help boost morale among the cops themselves, but it helps foster a closer relationship between police and communities. When we demonstrate respect and gratitude for the work that our law enforcement officials do, we are better able to come together in situations that require trust and cooperation.
At the press conference, Malliotakis again emphasized her commitment to ensuring that law enforcement officials have the equipment and supplies they need to do their jobs effectively.
