PBA statement on NYPD-issued smartphones

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“New York City police officers did not ask for NYPD-issued smartphones — we were ordered to carry and use them. We are now required to document every minute of our tour on these phones. Every form we are required to fill out and every alert we receive comes through the phone. If there’s a problem with cops using the phone on duty, NYPD management should change the policies and go back to pen and paper.”
