PAT LYNCH REACTS TO MAYOR AND POLICE COMMISSIONER'S COMMENTS ON POLICE MORALE AND CONTRACT

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The Mayor and Police Commissioner are confusing high-tech gadgets that improve job efficiency and safety equipment, that they are required to provide by law, with things that improve morale.  Our members’ morale is at rock bottom because nothing has been done to help them feed their families, pay their rent or put shoes on their children’s feet.  Police officers believe that Howard Edelman's neutrality in this arbitration was totally coopted by the city and, as a result, their ability to support their families has suffered at the city's hands.”
