SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY–In a first Suffolk County has named Nayyar Imam as the chaplain of the police department.
â€œThis is a blessing. It could be a bridge between the Muslim community and law enforcement, which is very necessary. Itâ€™s a need of the time,â€ Imam said in an interview to CBS.
Imam said he knows the expectations are high and urges anyone with questions concerning the Muslim community to just ask.
â€œTalk to the people if you have any concern. Just donâ€™t assume yourself if thereâ€™s something wrong with this community,â€ he said.
