Tomorrow, Wednesday, Aug. 28th, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano will hold his annual Jewish Community Security meeting at police headquarters.
Each year before the Jewish high holy days, Mangano brings together Jewish leaders with their local police precinct commanders to discuss safety and security concerns, and proactive and preventative measures being employed by Police to thwart crimes and safeguard our communities.
Members of the Jewish Community from Synagogues, organizations and the Jewish Advisory Council of the County Executive’s office will be in attendance.
“This event poses the perfect opportunity for local Jewish leaders to re-establish contacts or make new contacts with their local Precinct Commander so that a better working relationship can be developed ahead of the holidays,” Mangano said. “With the increase of hate crimes across the nation, it remains a goal of my administration to combat racism and inequalities. Unfortunately, both of these still exist in our culture and it will take everyone in this room, working together, to make sure we can limit bigotry and discrimination whenever possible. Everyone must also work together in order to keep our communities safe.”
County Executive Mangano will also announce that he will hold a press conference at Young Israel of Woodmere on September 3rd . At that time, along with the Police Department, he will be discussing the County’s increased security measures.
