Gov. Kathy Hochul announced millions in funding for threat assessment management teams across the state.

$10 million has been made available to all 57 counties in New York for local domestic terrorism prevention plans.

This comes after the devastating shooting in Buffalo that left 10 dead and three more injured.

“My number one priority as governor is keeping New Yorkers safe, and this much-needed funding will be critical to supporting our local public safety partners to confront domestic terrorism within their own communities,” the governor said.
