PAT LYNCH INSISTS THAT EVERY OFFICER ACCUSED IS ENTITLED TO DUE PROCESS AND THAT THE PBA WILL CONTINUE TO PROTECT ITS MEMBERS FROM A RUSH TO JUDGMENT

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Police officers are entitled, like anyone else, to due process.  It is our job to ensure that every officer who is accused has the same opportunity to defend him or herself as any other American.  We have defended police officers from rush to judgments in the past, we are defending them today and we will continue to defend them long into the future.”
