NYC Taxi & Limousine Officers need to be armed

Car stops are now the leading cause of death and serious injuries to law enforcement across the country. TLC Officers NEED to be armed, to ensure they return home safely to their families.

Why is this important?

The NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission Officers perform all the Police duties that all other Police departments perform. From car stops, to vehicle seizures to arrest on dangerous and violent offenders. They are the only POLICING department in NYC that perform their duties, UNARMED


Reasons for signing

  • Support these TLC officers to ensure they have ALL the tools neccessary to do thier jobs and get home safe.
  • TLC officers need to be armed to protect them selves. Maybe the community will be more cooperative with them if they were armed
  • Help protect tlc officers please
