Law enforcement officials meet with community leaders to discuss summer safety and combat anti-Semitism

GOSHEN Local law enforcement officials from the Catskills and Mid-Hudson region convened in Goshen on Thursday in anticipation of the influx of summertime residents, who are primarily from the New York City region.

District Attorney David Hoovler of Orange County held the meeting to reaffirm his commitment to combating anti-Semitism and other discriminatory offenses in the community.

He vowed to combat prejudiced crimes and warned the local community and religious leaders that they would not be allowed in this county.

There were representatives from local police departments from Liberty, Fallsburg, Monticello, Monroe, Goshen, Woodbury, Ramapo, Spring Valley, and other law enforcement agencies present, as well as leaders from the FBI, State Police, and county sheriff’s offices.

Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Schiff, Ulster County Undersheriff, Sullivan County District Attorney Brian Conaty, and emergency management commissioners from Orange and Sullivan counties were also present.

They all underlined the importance of summer programs and events for the neighborhood and committed to making sure kids and families had a good time.

The summer community leaders were reminded to stress the need of being cautious when walking along remote, unlit roads, as well as the increased traffic and road work.

Positive ties between law enforcement and the community were emphasized by community leader Rabbi Bernard Freilich and law enforcement chaplain Rabbi Abe Friedman.

Yossi Margerattin of Chaverim Rockland County and Abraham Rosenberg of the Sullivan County JCC, two groups that closely collaborate with county officials, shared the opinion.
