“Public perception is at an all-time high. Police officer’s should want to represent themselves, their police department, and their community with the utmost ethics and integrity. When Racial Intelligence is lacking, intolerance takes over.” – Linda Webb, Founder, Racial Intelligence Training
Times Square cops transferred over photos with topless women
Cops on patrol in Times Square on Tuesday said they were told not to take pictures with any topless women.
But the edict came a day late for two officers whose photo with a pair of topless ladies featured on the cover of Tuesday’s Daily News got them in hot water.
The officers were transferred to separate precincts for what a high-ranking official called a “lack of judgment.”
The officers had been assigned to the 71st Precinct in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. But Monday, they were in Times Square, taking part in a counterterrorism drill in which dozens of officers were dispatched to landmarks to create a visible presence.
“Punishing them in any way for it would be a miscarriage of justice,” said Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.
