NYC PBA DEFENDS PORT AUTHORITY POLICE
AFTER CANDIDATE’S INSULT

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“New York City police officers have worked side by side with Port Authority police officers for many years and we have found them to be well-trained and highly experienced professional police officers. On 9/11 we searched together for 23 NYPD officers and 37 PAPD officers who sacrificed their own lives while evacuating others to safety. If that doesn’t speak to professional policing, then I don’t know what does.”
