PBA statement on Manhattan District Attorney policy memo

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We continue to have serious concerns about the message these types of policies send to both police officers and criminals on the street. Police officers don’t want to be sent out to enforce laws that the district attorneys won’t prosecute. And there are already too many people who believe that they can commit crimes, resist arrest, interfere with police officers and face zero consequences. We look forward to discussing these issues with District Attorney Bragg, so that our members can do their job safely and effectively. We must all pull together towards one goal: a safer New York City.”
