Government must continue to address emerging threats and crises

Public Safety


As the nature of the terror threats facing New York evolves, we must make sure that our efforts and resources similarly evolve to meet those threats.

Training the Next Generation

This year we'll be opening the nation's first College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity.

We will be training all local governments in state-of-the-art emergency response techniques over the next year.

A More Just New York

Fairness for All

Raise the Age

New York is one of only two states to draw a bright line for adult criminal responsibility at age 16, no matter the offense.  Let's raise the age of criminal responsibility, and remove minors from adult jails and prisions.
