PBA Statement on Chief of Patrol fFausto Pichardo’s Retirement

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“This is what happens when elected officials play political games with police department operations. Our top talent in all ranks is being driven out the door and public safety is suffering. City Hall’s amateur-hour meddling has left the NYPD broken, almost beyond repair. We wish Chief Pichardo a long, happy and successful retirement. Wherever he goes next, they will be getting one of our finest.”
