Plan to Hire 1,000 is a "Drop in the Bucket"

PBA president Lynch said:

“Hiring 1,000 new police officers is a drop in the bucket since we have lost nearly 7,000 since since 2001. Under staffing not only empowers criminals, but it leads management to make bad policy decisions like quotas for police activities in an effort to compensate for the shortage. The City should fill the new Police Academy now and keep filling it until we reach Safe Streets, Safe City levels of staffing before crime gets out of control.”
