PBA statement on NYPD recruiting

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We fully support the NYPD’s attempt to recruit from the diverse communities we serve. Our neighborhoods are full of the talented, motivated recruits we need. But New York City’s best and brightest also know they could have more money and less stress doing another job — even another policing job. If our city would just support its police officers and pay us a salary on par with other local cops, they wouldn’t need to extend filing deadlines and waive test fees.”
