Reaction of PBA President to restoration of funding to hire more Police

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

"We have just learned that the City Council has restored funding to the budget that will allow the NYPD to hire a class of 1,400 new police officers in July. It is difficult to express the NYPD's urgent need to hire more police officers. We simply cannot fight traditional crime, maintain order and guard against terrorist acts without adequate staffing. We are grateful that the City Council recognizes that government's first responsibility is to protect its citizens."
