BROOKLYN - One month since 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was killed blocks from his Brooklyn home, District Attorney Charles Hynes and lawmakers are proposing the "Safe Stop" program to try and make sure another child does not face the same fate.
The safe stop program would provide safe havens for those who are lost or need help. Certain stores and buildings would be given a city-issued logo and have employees pass background checks to ensure safety. In times of distress, children could safely stay in these 'stops' and be able to call a family member or police. A similar law was proposed in July by Councilman David Greenfield called 'Leiby's Law'.
