NYPD cops told 'no vacation time or sick days unless they stop slowdown and issue more tickets'


Apparently they have to resume making arrests in Black neighborhoods or no transfers, vacation, time off, etc. What's being referred to a "slowdown". City is missing the revenue from the reduced policing. This from those responsible for gutting the policing in the first place.

Quotas are good and being encouraged again.

This would make a good episode of the Twilight Zone.

The word 'quota' is not used in police departments. Correct word used these days is 'productivity'. As in 'Officer Jones, what was your productivity this month'.

NYPD chief denies report that officers told no vacations, sick days until summons slowdown ends | Fox News

I really wouldn't pay attention to sites like the Daily Mail, the New York Post, the Daily News, etc. Those sites are nothing more than grocery store tabloids.

Of course; there are contracts .They are lucky they could be doing a sick out like in so many places in past. New Orleans even went on strike one time illegally.In most states I am aware quotas are illegal to set. One always has to remember that most of police authority comes from state penal and code of Criminal procedures. Traffic codes is also state. Cities only have limit power in criminal or traffic a law.

Depends on the state. In many states cities can create extensive ordinance codes that do allow them to heavily fine and even jail (not imprison) offenders.

As you link to a Fox News article lol.


One of the worst.





Possibly the chief didn't want the PR headache.






The fact that they feel they can "slow down" and the city keeps carrying on as usual tells you that they didn't need the heavy enforcement in the first place.

Same difference.


The departments have quotas. The jails/prisons have quotas. Everybody has to make their buck off the "justice" system.




In some states, if a prison doesn't have enough inmates, the state has to pay a fee to the prison to cover the costs.






I thought the goal was to reduce crime

the city of new york would not take away vacation or sick days from the cops no matter what. thats an empty threat. the cops have the city by the balls and they know it. it will be interesting to see how they use this power that they realized that they have and have basically used for nothing so far. wait until they use for something (contract negotiations).
