WHILE SUPPORTING THE CARRYING OF DRUG OVERDOSE FIGHTING INHALERS BY POLICE OFFICERS, PAT LYNCH INSISTS THAT HIS MEMBERS ARE ALREADY OVERBURDENED, UNDERSTAFFED AND UNDERPAID

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We become police officers to help people and we see too many people die during the course of our careers.   Given this antidote and the training of how and when to use will help save lives but it represents yet another responsibility placed on the shoulders of our already overburdened, understaffed and underpaid police officers.”
