NEW YORK — Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement regarding the death of NYPD Officer Robert Echeverria: 

“For the ninth time this year, we are struggling with the loss of another member of the NYPD. Officer Robert Echeverria was a 25-year veteran of the NYPD, a man who dedicated his career to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of New Yorkers. While we mourn the death of Officer Echeverria and the eight other members of the NYPD who have taken their lives, we must confront the real mental health crisis we are facing.
