PBA Shield

PBA President reacts to the tossing of a verdict in a civil case alleging excessive force

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“New York City police officers have increasingly become targets of baseless litigation because the City frequently chooses to settle suits to save money rather than fight them.  Even though it may cost more in the short term, we believe that the City is better served in the long run by fighting these suits more vigorously as they did in this case which resulted in the exposure of collusion.  In the end, fighting to protect the reputations of New York City police officers who are falsely accused will deter the fraudsters and opportunists and save millions in taxpayers’ money.”
