PBA reacts to the executive budget that reinstates 900 Police jobs

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The restoration of funding for 900 police officers is a sound decision and is a clear recognition by Mayor Bloomberg that government’s first responsibility is to protect its citizens. We are hopeful that the state will also recognize its obligation to fund NYC’s public safety when its budget is finalized. But even with the restoration of these police jobs, the NYPD will continue to struggle with 6,000 fewer police officers while shouldering the added burden of fighting terrorism. We must remember that the most recent attempt at terrorism in Times Square was only foiled because there was a police officer on the corner.“
