STATEMENT FROM MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON LEGAL VICTORY IN NYPD BAG SEARCH POLICY
"I am pleased that the district court has held that the NYPD's bag search policy is constitutional and a reasonable method to protect the public. Unfortunately, we live in a time when terrorist attacks are a very real possibility, and we must be vigilant in our security measures. We have an obligation to keep this City safe and the NYPD will continue to use reasonable precautions like bag searches to do so."
