Pol bid to halt cop-tix quotas

 

    The New York Post wrote an article about a new law, proposed by Senator Gianaris, that would outlaw police quotas for arrests and tickets.

    Police brass pushing arrest and ticket quotas could find themselves in jail for up to a year under a bill that state Sen. Michael Gianaris plans to introduce tomorrow.

    Backed by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the bill would make it illegal for supervisors to require cops to make a certain number of arrests over a specified period.

    Noting that good officers are being punished, Gianaris (D-Queens) said, “This bill would increase the penalties when quotas are used to evaluate performance.”
