Sorry for some inconsistency there. Tarrytown PD tends to release names to me, Sleepy Hollow does not; although I wouldn't tend to name them anyway. I tend to if it's DWI or, in this case, heroin. Good question about the Greenburgh PD, I will ask Chief on that. I was curious too.

Why the Greenburgh Task Force, because Sleepy Hollow asked for help, Never heard of a Mt. Pleasant Task Force. If your neighbors offere, take the help. A no brainer. Doesn't Greenburgh EMS assist Sleepy Hollow? As to names, who really cares?

My question is, Why can't the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force work in Sleepy Hollow? They are obviously able to make arrest doing undercover work, that the uniformed officers aren't able to easily do. Is this something that bothers you Adrian? Just wondering. I personally just don't question anything that makes our community better. Keep making the arrest! Job well done Sleepy Hollow Police, and thank you for bringing in other agencies to help make this community better.

I agree. So what if they are innocent until proven guilty. Keep out of trouble, and you keep out of the media or news. Period! I think all names should be posted. It helps to know who your neighbors are and what they might be involved in. Right, Adrian? I'm sure your name might have trickled on this site once or twice if patch was up and running then.

I think Adrian's comments were justified, as were his questions. Mr. Fulton's comments on Adrian are not.
