Williams' Statement On The Death Of Officer Anastasio Tsakos

April 27th, 2021

Press Release

"My heart, together with the hearts of New Yorkers across the city, is with the family, friends, and NYPD colleagues of Officer Tsakos today. I offer my prayers for peace and comfort in the wake of this senseless, preventable tragedy and loss. There are no excuses for the reckless, selfish actions that caused his death, that cause the deaths of so many New Yorkers each year. We all have a responsibility, an obligation to one another, to do our part to keep streets safe. Officer Tsakos was doing his, and it is devastating that the failure of one person, in one moment, to do the same cost him his life."
