PBA PRESIDENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF
CCRB CHAIRMAN RICHARD EMERY

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Had a police officer made remarks similar to Mr. Emery’s on two occasions, that officer would have been harshly disciplined. The next CCRB chairperson should be held to the same high standards that police officers are. Our hope is that whoever replaces him will be a fair-minded and reasonable person who has a basic respect for police officers and the difficult job that they do.”
