Pat Lynch explains why the PBA has named Commissioner Sewell “Person of the Year”

The PBA president is quoted in City and State: “With all the challenges facing New York City police officers, it has never been more important for our union to have a positive, productive relationship with the police commissioner. We are fortunate to have that relationship with Commissioner Sewell. Commissioner Sewell acknowledges these challenges, instead of trying to downplay them or explain them away. That alone is refreshing. But she goes further than that – she speaks up and explains to the public what police officers are going through.”

Pat Lynch condemns proposal to privatize some urban police duties

The PBA president is quoted in the NY Post: “This proposal is nothing more than private security contractors trying to cash in on the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. Arresting a drunken or high driver is a core police duty – you’re depriving one person of their liberty to save others’ lives.That requires training, judgement, and accountability. Do we really want our safety and freedom in the hands of the lowest bidder? Public safety must remain a public good, not a source of profit.”
