NYPD Parade Regulations Improvement

-A +A
0

The New York City Police Department's proposed regulations for when and what activities will require parade permits are a substantial improvement over regulations proposed earlier. 

We are very pleased that the NYPD was receptive to our suggestions for a practical approach to traffic and public safety issues. New York City is a symbol of creativity and free expression for people around the world. It is difficult to balance the protection of civil liberties with the need for public order. 

We believe that the newly proposed rules have struck a better balance. We hope that the Police Department will carefully consider all the comments that they receive from individuals and groups during this public comment period. 

We hope too that the Police Department will be open to additional suggestions of ways to better balance the competing interests at stake.

Ms. Quinn is Speaker of The New York City Council.
