PBA PRESIDENT REACTS TO REPORTS OF CHARGES TO BE FILED AGAINST DET. RANDY KATAKOFSKY — THE LEAD INTERNAL AFFAIRS INVESTIGATOR IN THE TICKET FIXING CASE

 

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“First we see the highest ranking supervisor who oversaw the so called ‘ticket fixing’ investigation retire suddenly and without warning and now the veracity of the work by the principal detective is being called into doubt by the department. If this rogue investigator cut corners in an attempt to set up a Lieutenant for charges, then who knows what he was capable of doing just to make a case against fellow police officers. You have to wonder if he set them up too. It casts an air of doubt over the entire investigation.”
