PRESS RELEASE

March 19, 2018


PBA President on appointment of Phil Walzak as NYPD deputy commissioner for public information

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“This is the clearest sign yet that the de Blasio administration thinks the NYPD's primary mission is to serve as a political tool, not protect public safety for all New Yorkers. With the Mayor’s former campaign manager now overseeing information given to the press — including the body-worn camera footage that the Mayor and the Police Commissioner have pledged to release in violation of state law — how can either police officers or the public have any confidence that it will be dispensed with an eye towards safety and justice and not filtered through a purely political lens?”
