Leiby’s Law To Be Introduced Today

8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was murdered by a stranger after getting lost (Daily News)

According to ABC 7 and News 12 Brooklyn, the City Council is expected to introduce a bill known as Leiby’s Law today.

The law, originally suggested by Councilman David Greenfield, would provide pre-screened safe havens so that in the future, lost children will be able to identify places they can go for help. After undergoing an approval process in which employees would undergo background checks, businesses would be issued a city- authorized logo to identify themselves as a safe place for lost children to seek help.

8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was abducted and murdered last week in Borough Park. Confessed killer Levi Aron approached Leiby while the boy was lost.
