President supports Commissioner’s call to hire more police officers and calls for market rate of pay

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“We agree with the Commissioner’s call to hire more police officers. Public safety and the safety of our officers demand it. We anticipate additional burdens on patrol officers brought by the federal monitor and a new Inspector General that will cut into patrol time. We must replenish the officers who were removed from local precincts for the fight against terrorism.  And, if we are to keep our experienced officers on the job and attract qualified candidates, then we must pay our police offices a market rate of pay or risk losing them to other better paying law enforcement jobs.”
