Cops under investigation for getting rid of tickets

Dozens of officers are under scrutiny through the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau, which is investigating allegations of ticket fixing among 12 Bronx precincts. The Bronx District Attorney’s office is also holding a grand jury investigation, although it remains unclear whether that investigation will come to completion. The NY Post reported that as many as 400 officers are under investigation and those who are found guilty could lose their jobs, be reprimanded, or lose their benefits.

The NY Times also reported on the incident and said that a “law enforcement official and several lawyers involved in the matter called the wrongdoing relatively minor.” However, they also said that this investigation could have major implications for the police department due to the large number of officers thought to be involved in the investigation.
