Republican Jack Martins vowed Sunday to nominate a “gang czar” to crack down on vicious MS thirteen gangsters if he’s elected Nassau County government.
“The primary duty of presidency is to maintain our residents protected. We at the moment are dealing with a public-security disaster with the rising presence of MS-thirteen gang violence that affects our communities, and we should deal with it as such,” Martins stated.
He stated he’ll create an inspector-degree place within the Nassau Police Division whose mission can be to “wipe out these violent gangs preying on our communities.
“This officer’s focus can be marshaling assets throughout the county and dealing with state and federal businesses in a focused strategy to share intelligence and fight the gang violence disaster we have now on this county. The inspector could have all of the assets wanted to get the job achieved,” he stated.
There have been 22 killings linked to MS thirteen in Nassau and Suffolk counties over the previous yr.
Human stays have been found final week in Freeport, and every week prior, authorities in Roosevelt discovered the stays of Angel Soler, sixteen, a scholar at Freeport HS, who had been lacking for 3 months. Authorities suspect each killings are gang-associated.
Martins, a former state senator, stated he would work with federal authorities and never shield unlawful immigrants concerned in gang exercise.
