NYC PBA PRESIDENT SPEAKS TO
STOP, QUESTION AND FRISK INTERVENTION RULING

Regarding today’s court ruling on the PBA’s request to be allowed to intervene in the Federal stop, question and frisk case, PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The court made clear that the PBA's collective bargaining and state law rights do not take a back seat to what is clearly a voluntary agreement between plaintiffs and the City, a point the PBA has made repeatedly since the agreement was struck by the new administration. The PBA will continue to monitor actions taken in this process moving forward to ensure that they do not violate the rights of NYC police officers.”
