400 NYPD Cops Could Be Charged for Fixing Tickets

April 18, 2011  | 

As many as 400 NYPD officers could be implicated in a wide-ranging corruption plan to help eliminate tickets for friends and family members of officers, the New York Post initially reported.

The news organization quoted an unnamed source who said that two NYPD lawyers were recently transferred from the department's legal bureau to its advocate's office, which handles departmental trials against officers, and told to expect hundreds of cases.

Officers in all 12 Bronx precincts, and possibly other boroughs, will be charged for allegedly helping out friends and family by "losing" paperwork and missing court dates. In turn, parking tickets, moving violations and quality-of-life summonses would be dismissed in court or vanish before ever getting near a judge, the Post reports.

What are these guys thinking? How stupid can you be, I would think these guys are trained better then this. I think that the city needs to look at their training on ethics and maybe their pay scales. Something is going on and I know that this is small if you compared it to the size of the NYPD but this is obviseouly a serious problem. What a sad day for the NYPD, again.
