PBA PRESIDENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“It’s time for the NYPD to realize that social media is an acceptable method of communication among individuals today.  We see nothing inappropriate about being depicted in uniform or in attire that is generally accepted by society as appropriate on social media.  These officers are proud to be part of the NYPD and should enjoy the same constitutionally protected rights of free speech and expression as anyone else.”
