PBA statement on City Council vote on pension bill

PBA President Pat Lynch said:

“We are disappointed that some Council members continue to put their ideology before the safety of their constituents. The NYPD has experienced record levels of attrition over the past two years and has struggled to recruit enough diverse, talented cops to replace the ones who left,” said Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch. “This bill provides an incentive for experienced patrol cops to remain on the job, the same kind of incentive that already exists for other NYPD ranks. It also incentivizes new recruits and younger cops to take and keep the job, even in this hostile, anti-police climate. Unfortunately, some Council members just want to perpetuate that climate. When cops continue to quit in droves, it will be our neighborhoods that suffer.”
