LYNCH ON NEW CCRB CHAIR: REMOVES ALL IMPARTIALITY FROM “INDEPENDENT AGENCY”

President Patrick J. Lynch said:

"By appointing a top aide to lead the CCRB, Mayor de Blasio has effectively removed all impartiality from the critical cases involving police officers that come before this so-called ‘independent agency.’ While Ms. Wiley no doubt wanted to leave a City Hall caught in the middle of multiple investigations, this appointment is another example of an administration that puts politically-motivated tactics ahead of fairness, and demonstrates once again its increasingly hostile attitude towards the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our city."
