Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman signed an executive order Wednesday stating that Nassau County Police Department must release daily reports on each arrested individual’s pending criminal case and bail status.

The new law aims to inform Nassau residents about “the potential threat [that New York State’s bail] reform laws pose to their safety,” county officials said. In 2021, there were a total of 11,005 arrests in Nassau, and 9,699 were released without bail, 300 of whom were arrested for weapon-related offenses, the county reported.
