PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:
“This preliminary report has exposed the entire inquiry as a charade. Instead of an impartial review of the protests and their aftermath, this report tells only one side of the story and delivers reheated proposals that have been part of the anti-police agenda for decades. If the goal is to heal the rift between police officers and the public, that won’t be achieved without giving meaningful consideration to the perspective of police officers on the street.”
As part of the Attorney General’s inquiry, the NYC PBA submitted extensive written testimony, including testimonials from injured police officers and input from disorder control expert and former NYPD Chief of Department Louis Anemone. Read the PBA’s full testimony here.
