Memorial to slain Nyack cops, guard in jeopardyPosted: Updated:
Rockland PBA members voiced their concern Tuesday for the fate of a memorial tribute that could be in danger due to changes to the Tappan Zee Bridge.
The memorial, which is located along Route 59 and Mountainview Avenue, pays tribute to the two police officers and security guard killed during the Brinks heist 25 years ago. Cyrill Kerr, president of the Rockland County PBA, says, "This is very sacred to us and we do not want it touched." He is calling upon Governor Eliot Spitzer (D-NY) and the New York State Thruway to be mindful of the sanctity of the memorial.
In response to the PBA's fears, a spokesperson for the New York State Department of Transportation says none of the changes on the Tappan Zee Bridge at Interstate 11 will affect the memorial.
