NYPD Says Candidates Too Quiet on Terror Threat


New York City’s police commissioner says the mayoral candidates are not talking enough about how to continue to protect against terrorism.

Raymond Kelly said Monday that the public should be asking whether or not candidates understand the threat to New York City. He says the public also needs candidates’ perspectives on the role the NYPD should play in protecting the city from another terrorist attack.

Kelly says he wants to know what the candidates plan to do to protect the city, and whether they would devote resources to it.

Kelly was addressing the Council on Foreign Relations and The Association for a Better New York.
