PBA REACTS TO NASSAU POLICE DEPARTMENT'S RECRUITING IN NEW YORK

In reaction to the Nassau Police Department's recruiting activities in NYC,  PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

 

“New York City has become the nation’s law enforcement job fair because it produces excellent police officers that are easy to steal because our top pay is not competitive.    New York pays its officers $59,500 at top pay while Nassau’s pay is nearly $92,000.  Until the NYPD pays a competitive salary, we will continue to lose fully trained and experienced officers at an alarming rate.  We don’t blame any officer for pursuing a career in any other community that recognizes the value of a police officer’s work and pays them for it.”
