Robert F. Devitt Sr., the father and uncle of a Yonkers Police Officer is concerned about what the liability costs will be if or when “God Forbid” a police officer gets hurt because of the lack of bulletproof vests for Yonkers Police, isn’t it cheaper to buy the vests?
It always comes down to money, it’s about money. How can we ask the police to protect us, when we won’t protect them.
The Yonkers City Officials said the money is in the budget for the police to buy their bulletproof vests, so tell them to go ask the Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone, their Police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett and their Union Leaders about why they’re not using the money in the police funds that has been available for them year after year in the city budget, the money is there tell them to use it, said a Yonkers official.
Yonkers Police Unions should ask the Yonkers Mayor and his staff how much money is in the city budget for the police to buy their bulletproof vests, said another city official. Put it in writing to the Yonkers Corporation Council, and then you’ll see how fast the Yonkers Police get bulletproof vests without blinking an eye.
Yonkers Police need protection against these violent street gangs and it starts with wearing bulletproof vests.
