The word from the NYPD on tomorrow's Kiss-In

After getting the memo from NYC Council Speaker Quinn's Office about the LGBT Advisory Committe, I contacted the LGBT Community Liaison, NYPD Detective Tim Duffy, about tomorrow's Great Nationwide Kiss-In event at Battery Park. Given the way that anti-gay websites are stirring up anger by portraying the event as public sex and a danger to children, I wanted to know if the NYPD has made any special preparations. Here is his response.


Hugh,

The event is occurring in the confines of the 1st Precinct inside Battery Park. We are not expecting any anti protestors at this time. The Parks Department and 1st Precinct are aware of the event and will monitor it.

You can let everyone know that anyone observed harassing/assaulting anyone will be dealt with by the NYPD to the fullest extent of the law.

Also inform all that anyone that is the victim of any such incident should report it to the NYPD immediately or dial 911 as soon as possible.

If you become aware of any protest or further info you think I can help with please feel free to contact me asap.

Detective
Tim Duffy
(646) 610-6017
