[HISTORY: Adopted by the Malone Village Board 5-18-1992. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The law will be enforced to balance the rights of citizens to exercise their constitutional rights of free speech and the right of lawful medical clinics to operate. The laws of the State of New York and the Village of Malone will be enforced.
Protection of life and property. It is our desire that no one is injured: no client or staff of the medical clinics and no citizen exercising his constitutional rights. Therefore, the least confrontational means will be used by the police as a first response in enforcing the law. The police are authorized to use all legal means to carry out their mission of enforcing the law and protecting life and property, as they determine are needed. We encourage all parties to avoid violence in any manner.
The Malone Village Board stands behind our Police Department as a professional group of men who have been asked by our community to handle an extremely difficult situation under extreme conditions.
