    If I understand your problem correctly, just use a synchronized getter method. When accessing the same data across multiple threads, you should make sure to use synchronized methods.
    For more information on synchronized methods, read the Oracle tutorial: Synchronized Methods (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes > Concurrency)

    To access a variable in thread you should declare it with final keyword
