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.

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.”

Specifically, Bratton wants 400 more officers to address a new terror threat.

“The ISIS threat as referenced yesterday by the Secretary of Homeland Security has morphed in new and terrible directions,” he said.

Bratton said the terrorism picture in the U.S. has changed “dramatically” since he and Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counter-terrorism John Miller came onboard, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the global terrorism threat is evolving.

“Just on my watch in the last 16 months, we’ve had to ramp up our communications with state and local law enforcement because of the manner in which the global terrorist threat is evolving,” Johnson said.

And on “CBS This Morning” Monday, former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell said another 9/11-style attack could happen if pressure is not kept on terrorists.

Morell echoed Homeland Johnson’s comments where he warned that lone-wolf terrorists can strike the U.S. “at any moment,” CBS D.C. reported Morell stated that the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is “growing every day.”

Meanwhile, while overall crime is down in the city newly-released NYPD statistics show a springtime spike in shootings. Bratton said he supported no increase in personnel last year, but things have changed.

Bratton said he also wants the additional officers for the constant in-house retraining that goes on.

Bratton said he will detail his plans for the department once he knows what is in the city budget for him and how many more officers he will have.
