NYPD Forming Unit To Deal With Ticket-Fix Claims

NEW YORK (AP) — The NYPD is forming a new unit to deal with claims that officers are fixing tickets.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the special unit will track court cases to ensure parking and other low-level tickets go through the court system.

The Bronx district attorney’s office launched a probe about a month ago after an officer was caught on a wiretap talking about making a ticket disappear.

Dozens of officers are being investigated. No criminal charges have been filed.

The NYPD is also doing an internal investigation.

    Can we REALLY expect anything to come from these ‘internal investigations’? Somehow I think the NYPD is biding it’s time for this to blow over and then sweep it under the rug.
