PBA statement on solo Transit patrols

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We can’t fix the NYPD staffing crisis by spreading our overstretched resources even thinner. Solo transit patrols were abandoned because they make it harder for cops to protect straphangers and ourselves. They’re even less effective now that criminals know there are no consequences for fighting cops and resisting arrest. New York City police officers are overburdened, underpaid and leaving in droves — this proposal will only accelerate the exodus.”
