NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton has issued a call for more officers in the mayor’s budget.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, Bratton was quiet when Mayor Bill de Blasio made his budget announcement last week, because of the shooting that killed Detective Brian Moore.READ MORE: Retired FDNY Firefighter Suffering From 9/11-Related Illness In Need Of Lifesaving Bone Marrow Transplant
But Bratton was firm on the subject Monday.
“Let’s make it very clear — I am looking for a lot more police officers,” he said. “Let’s make no mistake about that.”
