as a former hhc officer I served from 1967 thru 1971 and faced the same problems then as the officers deal with today.

I am happy to see there are many improvements in the service today,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but it is still the same old fight with the city of new York ,,,,,,,, when will they arm these officers so they can better protect the citizens of this city
