Pat Lynch calls the use of newly hired CCRB prosecutors in the NYPD trial room nonsensical, wasteful and unnecessary

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said regarding hiring CCRB prosecutors for the trial room:

“In a time of increasing demands for limited government resources, this is another nonsensical program that is simply wasteful and unnecessary. Instead of using existing NYPD employees who have performed the function for decades, there will now be newly hired CCRB personnel who will present these very same cases before the very same hearing officers. By inserting newly hired CCRB personnel into the process, we have ensured that a situation that didn’t need fixing will be supplanted by a new bureaucracy, further draining resources from areas where they are most needed, a prime example being the NYPD, which has been left dangerously depleted with 7,000 fewer officers.”
