Statement by Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance Jr. on “Supervised Injection Facilities”

May 4, 2018

“New Yorkers who are suffering and dying from opioids need bold public health interventions — not the heavy hand of the criminal justice system. My Office is proud to support the Mayor’s proposal to establish Overdose Prevention Centers, and I thank Mayor de Blasio, Commissioner Bassett, and Speaker Johnson for their leadership.”
