PBA CALLS OPERATION ALL OUT A LAST DITCH,
BAND-AID RESPONSE TO SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF
POLICE OFFICERS

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said  of Operation All Out: 

“Operation All Out is a clear and unambiguous admission that the NYPD does not have enough police officers on patrol to curb gun violence, control crime and keep the City safe.  It is a last ditch, band-aid response to the escalating gun violence and disorder in this City.  City Hall has ignored the dramatically diminished staffing in the NYPD for well over a decade and now this administration is left to fix the problem.  Hiring more police officers is critical to addressing this problem and it must begin immediately.”
