PBA PRESIDENT RENEWS CALL
FOR INVESTIGATION AFTER FIRING OF CCRB LEAKER

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“The firing of the leaker is a positive first step, but the release of a police officer's confidential personnel records is still a crime that should be thoroughly investigated and, if necessary, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This was an illegal effort to short-circuit laws that protect police officers' safety, privacy and due process rights, and a thorough examination of this individual’s actions and the entire organization is the only way to make certain there is a strong deterrent to such actions in the future.”
