Statement of PBA President Patrick J. Lynch on latest crime statistics

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Any time Mayor de Blasio — or any of his immediate predecessors — have touted grand achievements in public safety, our flush economy, neighborhood revitalization, or record-breaking tourism, it is due to the dedication and professionalism of the women and men who actually do the work to keep our streets safe. For the past three decades, New York City officers have provided unparalleled police services at a below-market rate. As a result, our members have effectively subsidized the City budget by many billions of dollars. Now is the time to pay our police officers like professionals, so that they can continue to keep our streets safe, and raise their families in the same communities they protect.”
