Watchdog reports that in a recent case, witnesses protection has helped to protect people who were attacked while walking down the street in Queens.
The program is part of a nationwide program called Witness Protection, and it provides money and training to help victims, and their families.
The programs are administered by the NYPD’s Department of Investigation and Response, which also provides resources for victims of crimes.
“The NYPD works closely with the NYPD Police Survivors Network, which works with law enforcement agencies and community organizations in the community to provide survivors with resources, support and information about their protection needs,” the NYPD said in a statement to ESPN.
“We are proud of the work the NYPD has done with Witness Protection and are grateful to the victims who have been able to access these resources.”
