(VIDEO) NYPD: Despite New Academy Grads, Force Still Over 1,000 Officers Short

New York cops turn their backs to DeBlasio.

“While the police-oversight complex is pushing to ruin more cops’ careers…”

Personally, I’m waiting for the moment when Snake Plissken is covertly inserted onto Manhattan Island to rescue the president. Complete with his totally badass Mac 10 on steroids.

Even Snake couldn’t save the Big Apple.

Don’t laugh. With another body-blow of resignations and retirements, the New York Police Department is somewhere between 1,000 to 1,200 shy of being fully manned.

As reported by Amy Furr of Breitbart.com, the once formidable NYPD is now “over 1,000” badges short.

Also noted by the Breitbart reporter (emphasis mine);

“More of New York City’s police officers are reportedly rushing for the exit as crime plagues their communities.”

“The decision to quit, along with NYPD’s recruiting issues, reportedly means the 34,000 officers are lacking over 1,000.”

“Cops are being squeezed from every direction. They are working inhumane amounts of forced overtime. The brass is pushing for more enforcement, while the police-oversight complex is pushing to ruin more cops’ careers,” Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Hendry noted.”

In the meantime, Samantha Max of Gothamist.com reports;

“New York City police officers are leaving their jobs at what some officers and experts say is an alarming rate, and not enough new recruits are taking their place.”

Gee, I wonder why NYC cops think the higher-ups are gunning for them?

“Even as 561 new police recruits were sworn in earlier this month, hundreds of officers were handing in their badges and shields to leave the department. According to the Police Pension Fund, over 2,100 sworn officers have retired or resigned since January. That’s more departures in half a year than there were in all of 2019.”

“Departures surged in 2020. And while fewer people left last year, the department is still struggling to staff up. There are currently almost 1,200 vacant positions, according to NYPD statistics.”

“The Police Benevolent Association, which represents rank and file officers, calls the staffing decline a “stampede.”

Who knew John Carpenter’s 1981 effort would turn-out to be prophetic warning?
