NYC Mayor Says It ‘Is Wise’ For Business Owners To Hire Private Security Amid Crime Spike
New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams said Wednesday on MSNBC that he supports local shop owners hiring private security amid a crime spike.
A group of Bronx business owners represented by the Fordham Road Business Improvement District will operate the “Ambassadors Program” of five people between 2:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, the New York Post (NYP) reported. This unarmed group will patrol the area to deter thieves, according to the report.
MSNBC’s Jonathan Lemire noted the cover of The Post, which featured the story.
