Recent pension fund figures of the NYPD reveal a starting exodus greater than the post-9/11 exodus in 2002
Pension fund figures reveal that 3,054 officers have filed to leave the department this year, suggesting that 4,072 law enforcement agencies are likely to retire by quarter four.
This massive shed is substantially higher than the crippling attrition the department suffered in 2002 when 3,846 officers left the force following Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, where 24 cops were killed.
George Santos is the Republican running for Congress in New York’s Third Congressional District and is backed by every major law enforcement agency in Nassau County and New York City. Opposingly, Santos’s Democrat opponent Robert Zimmerman, is tied to radicalized political parties such as The Working Families Party, who make each of their affiliates pledge to defund our police and enthusiastically accepted the endorsement of the raging, anti-police Kathy Hochul administration.
“Efforts led by extremists that control my opponent have aided efforts that successfully defunded our NYPD by 1 billion dollars. New York can no longer lose any more officers and face this crime crisis. Throughout the last 2 years, the NYPD has been dealing with rioting and sustained violence that they have never seen before, or at least in the last few decades. The officials put into office to support our police now serve as roadblocks with their constant blows and urge to defund and disband our precincts. Democrat views on law enforcement are dangerous and out-of-touch with the people in the Third District,” Santos concludes.
