Statement from Mayor de Blasio on Signing of Body Scanner Legislation

October 2, 2018

“Getting more advanced body scanners in our jails has been a top priority. These units will help us drive down violence and make our jails safer for staff and inmates. I want to thank Governor Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Heastie, Senate Leaders Flanagan and Stewart-Cousins, bill sponsors Assembly Member Weprin and Senator Hannon, and COBA President Elias Husamudeen for their role in this critical reform.”
