Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter held a press conference today to discuss security for the upcoming 2016 Presidential Debate which will take place Monday, September 26th at Hofstra University. Monday’s debate is the first of three Presidential Debates. Recent terror attacks in New York and New Jersey have our police officials on heightened alert. To that end, there will be numerous road closures and prohibited items for the debate.

“The Nassau County Police Department does an outstanding job protecting and serving the people of Nassau County,” said County Executive Mangano. “With the recent terror attacks in Manhattan and New Jersey, and unprecedented times around the globe, large scale events such as this Presidential Debate require significant police resources. I thank our partners in law enforcement and call on the public to help serve as our eyes and ears. If you see something out of the ordinary - a suspicious individual, backpack or bag, dial 911. Additionally, if you read something on social media that raises concern, Text-Tip via the Nassau County CrimeStoppers mobile app.”
