PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“The leak of such information is simply another demonstration of the CCRB’s inability to function in the fair and impartial manner prescribed by the City Charter.  It is an agency that actively solicits complaints, places pressure on citizens to continue questionable claims and presides over a system that encourages the pursuit of false, unsworn allegations.  Their ineptness is well documented and well known and renders virtually any information released or leaked by the agency as meaningless.  Nonetheless, the release of confidential records in this or any case may have criminal implications and must be fully investigated.”
