Statement on implementation of Right To Know Act business cards

PBA President Pat Lynch said:

"With this order, the NYPD is going out of its way to undermine its own public safety mission. After helping to push the Right to Know Act through the City Council over the PBA’s opposition, the NYPD is now going beyond even those misguided mandates to encourage the filing of meritless complaints against police officers. They are also opening the floodgates for anti-police advocates to demand the release of footage of every single police action. The environment that police officers face on the street is already needlessly contentious; these policies will exacerbate that effect and ultimately undermine our ability to protect all New Yorkers.”
