Fresh Meadows, NY – In response to the news of the tragic passing of an off-duty NYPD Sergeant, Linghong Li, Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D,WF-Fresh Meadows) issued the following statement:

“Today I join the Queens community and New Yorkers across the city in mourning the tragic loss of Sergeant Li. Let us keep his family in our thoughts throughout this difficult time and remember the other nine NYPD officers who passed this year due to suicide.

Sergeant Li’s untimely passing is a deeply unfortunate call to action that we can no longer overlook the mental health needs of officers who report for duty every day to protect and serve our city and state. Moving forward, it is critical that we respond to the rising number of suicides with greater awareness and understanding of the changes that must be implemented to ensure mental health services are routinely utilized among law enforcement.”
