NYPD limits retirement applications amid 400 percent surge this week

30

The NYPD cannot keep up with the mass exodus so they had to daily retirement quotas.

As Mayor Bill de Blasio engages in racist political theater at Trump Tower, the NYPD is rapidly shrinking. This was entirely predictable. Why would anyone want to be a member of the NYPD, when the mayor appeases criminals and vilifies the police. In addition, the job is dangerous and the pay sucks! Sadly the people of New York City will pay the price for Mayor De Blasio’s incompetence and pro-criminal policies. To make matters even worse, is that De Blasio still has 18 months in office. How much more damage will he inflict on New York City?

NYPD limits retirement applications amid 400 percent surge this week

By New York Post, July 8, 2020

New York’s Finest are putting in for retirement faster than the NYPD can handle — while citing a lack of respect and the loss of overtime pay, The Post has learned.

surge of city cops filing papers during the past week more than quadrupled last year’s number — as the city grapples with a surge of shootings — and the stampede caused a bottleneck that’s forcing others to delay putting in their papers, officials and sources said.

The NYPD said Wednesday that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, an astounding 411-percent increase over the 35 who filed during the same time period in 2019.

The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.

That number represents a 75-percent increase over the 287 who filed for retirement during the same time last year, the NYPD said.

Sources said that the deluge of applications had overwhelmed the department — due to cancellation of overtime for the workers who process them — and that the number of daily applicants was being limited as a result.
