De Blasio praises NYPD while crime continues to soar

Mayor Bill de Blasio commended the NYPD Thursday for their work as crime continues to spike amid concerns for public safety. 

This past week has seen various subway attacks, a shooting in Times Square, and a police officer shot in Brooklyn just last night. De Blasio believes the re-opening of New York City will help reduce crime and simultaneously change the public perception that the city is currently unsafe.
