NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea announced that the NYPD has now substantially implemented the suggestions of an non-partisan blue-ribbon panel of former prosecutors and judges for improving the NYPD's internal disciplinary system.
NYPD Commissioner Shea "We ask for the public's trust – and the public must know we are worthy of it. Policing is a privilege and demands the community's trust in knowing that NYPD officers are living up to the NYPD's high standards for integrity, fairness, compassion, and effectiveness in keeping the peace, protecting life and property and maintaining order"
What has been done under Commissioner Shea?
-Wielded his authority as the final arbiter of discipline in clear and decisive ways.
-Enacted a new false-statement enforcement policy.
-Overseen the monthly publication of the NYPD's trial-room calendar.
-imposed punishments swiftly and often more punitively than is recommended.
