NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — Suffolk County, Long Island, has a growing Latino population.
County Police Chief Rodney Harrison recently appointed a Latino liaison officer, a position designed to build relationships between police and the many Latinos who live in the county.
Yasmin Gallant’s role is twofold: providing information to the community and listening to community concerns.
Police have set up a hotline to reach her directly: 934-85-APOYO.
