Supervisor Romaine calls for police presence at schools during April 24 Special Election in 5th Assembly District

On February 28, Supervisor Ed Romaine e-mailed a letter to Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Acting Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron requesting Police Officers be assigned at all schools designated as polling places during the April 24 special election in the 5th Assembly District. Noting that many voters will be entering the schools during regular school hours, the Supervisor said that “a police presence would likely discourage tendencies toward violent action at any and all of our polling places.” The Supervisor’s request comes two weeks after a former student killed 17 people, including students and adults, at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
