Albany, NY – NYS has launched new security measures at Planned Parenthood sites across New York State. The State Police began increase patrols at Planned Parenthood locations across the state this past Friday.
Friday’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic was a senseless act of violence that has left us shocked and heartbroken. While we are still learning more about what led to this horrendous attack in Colorado, we are taking appropriate precautions and doing everything possible to prevent similar tragedies from taking place in our state,” said Governor Cuomo.
The State Police will be patrolling clinics across New York on Monday, and our administration is working closely with dedicated Planned Parenthood staff and our local partners to ensure the safety of these health centers throughout the state. Beginning Monday November 30th, State Police will be engaging with staff at Planned Parenthood clinics around the state for discussions about security. The State Police will also be increasing patrols of clinics in coordination with local law enforcement.
