NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police Commissioner Bill Bratton discussed police relations with the African-American community at a black history awards breakfast Tuesday morning.
The event was held at Greater Allen AME Church of New York in Jamaica, Queens.
Bratton told the audience NYPD officers walk a fine line every day, 1010 WINS’ Derricke Dennis reported.
“We’ve seen in the past year that police actions can still be a flashpoint,” Bratton said.
Bratton said there was more work to do, especially when it comes to recruiting more minority officers.
