FOLLOWING BRUTAL ATTACK ON TWO HOUSING OFFICERS,
PBA PRESIDENT CALLS FOR MAXIMUM CHARGES
AND INCREASED STAFFING

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“These brave officers were set upon by a group of thugs who have seriously assaulted police officers and attempted to take their weapons in the past.  If the work these officers do is to benefit the people of those apartment houses, then the system must hold these repeat offenders responsible to the maximum extent possible.  If we are to make these buildings safe, then we must fight the anti-police climate created by gangs and criminals while increasing police staffing in these areas to Safe Streets Safe City levels.”
