PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:
“Time and time again, Mayor de Blasio and his administration have disrespected police officers by refusing to protect them and their families with an adequate disability benefit. Their lack of effort is politics, plain and simple, especially considering New York City police officers are now the only police officers in all of New York State who are subject to this diminished benefit.
We remain willing to work with the City Council, the State Legislature, and the Governor to correct this injustice, and hope the Mayor will join this effort and stop playing games with the lives of New York City cops.”
