ANONYMOUS POSSIBLE TERRORIST THREAT
AGAINST POLICE OFFICERS PROMPTS WARNING
FROM THE NYC PBA TO ITS MEMBERS
TO BE CAUTIOUS

 

NYC PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“New York City police officers recognize that they are always a potential target for terrorists and political extremists.  The PBA is reminding all of our members to be alert at all times, back each other up and to take all necessary precautions when responding to jobs.   Be mindful that any call, regardless of how insignificant it appears to be, may be a set up.  Rely on your training and tactics and trust your instincts.  Don’t hesitate to call for back up when your gut tells you something is wrong.”
