In response to the behavior of Port Authority Commissioner Caren Turner towards two Tenafly Police Officers, Assembly Members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey issued the following statements:
“I applaud and thank these officers for remaining so professional and calm during their unfortunate interaction with Ms. Turner. Officers Casper and Savitsky are model officers well deserving of recognition. I thank them for their professionalism and service to the people of Tenafly,” said Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling.
“The behavior Ms. Turner displayed towards these officers was shameful and disturbing. These officers were simply attempting to do their jobs and were met with abusive vitriol.
