According to reports, charges include bribery, perjury and official misconduct for allegedly making tickets for friends, family and colleagues disappear.

The Associated Press had reported that several high ranking city lawmakers and a New York Yankees official were among those who allegedly had tickets thrown out, in exchange for payment or gifts.

Some of the officers have already reportedly been disciplined by the department by having their pay and vacation days docked.

The 6-month-long grand jury probe began after an officer under investigation was heard on wiretap allegedly fixing a ticket.
