Clarkstown Supervisor Proposes Funding for Protection in Malls

Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack announced last week, a plan to get a greater police presence in Rockland and Westchester County malls. Gromack is requesting $94.5 million dollars for an increase in police funding statewide, following recent terrorist threats against shopping centers throughout the country, which would provide at least $2 million for each mall. Gromack stated at a conference that the money would not be used to reduce law enforcement budgets, but to add services to malls in the area. Clarkstown has two major shopping centers, the Palisades Center Mall and the Shops at Nanuet, and according to Gromack extra police could not be funded by their real estate and sales tax revenue, and additional funding in the state budget is necessary. The New York budget was already presented by Governor Andrew Cuomo earlier this year is being reviewed for approval by the Legislature.
