D.A. Vance Delivers Remarks on Crimes Against Asian-American New Yorkers at NYPD Press Conference Click For More

Mr. Elliot is accused of brutally shoving, kicking, and stomping a 65-year-old mother to the ground – after telling her that she didn’t belong here. Let me be clear: this brave woman belongs here. Asian-American New Yorkers belong here. Everyone belongs here. Attacks against Asian-American New Yorkers are attacks against all New Yorkers, and my Office will continue to stand against hate in all its forms.

Good afternoon Chair Adams and members of the Committee on Public Safety. Thank you for the invitation to speak today about my Office’s Fiscal Year 2022 Preliminary Budget. Over the past eleven years, I am proud to have had the opportunity to appear before the City Council on numerous occasions to discuss my Office’s contributions to public safety in Manhattan and New York City. The critical support we receive each year from the City Council and the Mayor’s Office has helped us implement a wide range of criminal justice reforms over the years and to become digital innovators.

Testimony before City Council Finance and Housing and Buildings Committees Oversight Hearing on Examining the City’s Deed Theft and Deed Fraud Crisis Click For More

There are few greater threats than being displaced from one’s home.  Shockingly, that can happen through property title theft, or deed fraud, with the stroke of a pen or the click of a mouse.  Deed fraud is not only harrowing to the victim, but it also affects the integrity of real estate ownership, and real estate taxes are a substantial source of New York City revenues.  Notaries public are the gatekeepers that can thwart this criminal activity.

This is not the testimony I had prepared to deliver on March 19, nor could I have foreseen that any of us would be participating in this hearing in this manner. The coronavirus outbreak has upended our lives and the fabric of our society in ways that we are still grieving and struggling to comprehend.
