NYPD To De Blasio: Drop Dead

New York City police officers are retiring at such an alarming rate the personnel office had to slow the amount of paperwork they receive on any given day.

The New York City Police Department is reportedly having to limit the number of retirement applications that it processes on a daily basis due to the overwhelming number of officers who are retiring due to loss of overtime pay and a lack of respect in the current political environment that demonizes police officers.

Now why would that be? This is an enriching, fulfilling, honorable profession which earns respect from both the law-abiding community and the seedy underworld.

“A surge of city cops filing papers during the past week more than quadrupled last year’s number — as the city grapples with a surge of shootings — and the stampede caused a bottleneck that’s forcing others to delay putting in their papers.” “The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.”

Even for a department with 19,000 officers, 503 retirements in nine days is a startling statistic. It should also be noted the retirements likely didn’t stop on June 3rd. If anything, the situation has gotten worse in the last month, and I’m certain the number of officers putting in papers is now well over 1,000.

“Apparently, the pension section is only taking a certain amount of people per day and I think they are backed up till late July, early August,” one police officer told the Post. “That’s why you don’t see like 100 a day, because they are only doing like 35 to 40 a day, by appointment.” (H/TJ.J. Sefton, AOSHQ)

My department is in the same boat. If you call the personnel department to schedule early retirement, you’ll get a date in three to four months. Most officers in blue cities are getting out because the mayors, district attorneys, police commissioners, and many citizens no longer have our backs.

If you think blue cities are violent now, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

  1. Dateline Dec. 31, 2055: The last of NYPD police officers was allowed to retire today. The blind, black, trans-lesbian had answered the NYPD help desk for the last 15 years, but since no officers had been available for call outs since 2021, the city government decided as a cost cutting move to allow her to retire with full benefits of $1,250,000 per year.

    She was overheard saying it had been a very boring job for the last two decades, since everyone in NYC knew that when the help desk was called you were promptly put on hold listening to old Barry Manilow recordings, and no one had bothered to call.

  2. TX Nick – It took de Blasio six years to ruin Giuliani’s transformation of NYC from shithole to masterpiece. New York is never going back to the Giuliani years. Ever.

  4. If you think this worries blue city “leaders” think again. This will allow them to shift the pool of candidates for near future police academy classes to their preferred cadets. Think antifa is bold now? Wait until they have a badge to pin on their brown shirts.

  5. CSA – My thought was and still is this is a budgetary concern. You make the police a target, you take away their city support, and people with time on – like me – decide to quit or seek early retirement. The city gets rid of higher salaries for entry-level ones, and they can hire m uneducated kids who crave power to fill the spots.
