“The commissioner said many times publicly, given the instructions, it’s up to supervisors to step up now. Just tell people, if you’re in the subway, we’re telling everyone in the subway, you got to wear masks, that includes police officers, period,” de Blasio said.

“I think we’re better than that, I think the public deserves better than that, and frankly, I know the men and women every day are better than that, but that’s inexcusable,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said.
