|It really is a CRIME that TPF is gone along with Citywide Street Crime & now PCT Anti Crime plus so many other Undercover crime prevention & illegal gun recovery initiatives when they all should be in place today....also Mounted would have been very useful the last few weeks but pussification prevailed.......whats next to go Narcotics Units ? .....now the perps soon might "OWN THE NIGHT" & the day.|
“NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops,” the message, which is being passed among cops via text, according to sources.nypost.com
We are 100% behind you NYPDI can't say I blame them. They have gotten no backing from the elected officials at all.
There'll be nothing left to our largest city in the country if that sick out takes place.
Will other police depts. throughout the country join them ?
Both sides better do some serious talking, that's for sure.
There is a thread on this site titled "Oh those busy 4th of July's". Those nights were totally out of control.
But if this happens, those busy 4th of July's will look like "The Good Old Days".
Was it the FDNY or Yonkers FD that went out on strike back in the 70s or 80s ? That didn't last too long.
|"The TPF was formed in 1959 to deal with rising crime|
in New York City. They were also specially trained in crowd control.
TPF members were all volunteers but had to be young, at least 6 feet
tall and have high activity records as police officers. Assigned to
a special 6 PM to 2 AM 4th platoon they patrolled high crime areas
augmenting regular precinct patrols. During the turbulent 1960's
they proved themselves highly effective in not only fighting
crime but in controlling civil disorders." .......When i came back to NY on a special leave to take the NYPD test in '65 at Tilden HS in BKLYN my hope was to get on the PD & be in the TPF until i could get on the FDNY however after being Discharged from the USMC in March '68 the test for FDNY was right there in June '68 & because the 2nd Sections were formed in Aug '68 i got on FD in Sept '68...... www.policeny.com/images/TPF%20WD%20(2)%20(Custom).jpg

Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Fri…nypost.com
Our state and local politicians from the Governor, to the Mayor, to the District Attorneys to the City Council, are proactively, openly, and with a perverted sense of self pride eroding the safety once enjoyed by all in our city. These reckless politicians are unconscionably passing legislation to hinder us from fulfilling our sworn responsibilities of protecting the citizens of this great city.
With July 4th upon us, Lieutenants must be extra vigilant to protect those they supervise from unnecessarily being drawn into situations that could endanger their safety, jobs and freedom. As proven by over 900 Line-of-Duty deaths, New York City Police officers never shirk our responsibility to protect others from physical harm. Mayor de Blasio has stated that we will not enforce fireworks infractions! Maybe we should have a contact number for the local Council Member, Borough President, or community representative so that they can ask the offenders to stop setting off fireworks. One Borough President, and assumed Mayoral candidate, publicly suggested that the neighborhood people should speak with such fireworks offenders (unfortunately five people in the Bronx employed this approach which resulted in all five people being stabbed or slashed). If you receive a complaint of a house party or barbecue, remember that people are permitted to have such gatherings. Again, maybe you should have the phone numbers to the respective Council Member or Borough President to contact and perhaps they can send over a Social Distancing Ambassador to effectively address any social distancing infractions that may be occurring. I know this sounds ridiculous to you, as it does to us, but this is what our politicians are recommending.
These baseless and continuing hostile and dangerous anti-police policies and rhetoric have resulted in an even stronger and more unified cooperation amongst the police unions. In the past weeks the executive bodies of the PBA, DEA, SBA, LBA and CEA have been in daily conversation. We have cooperatively agreed to dedicate any and all resources and are currently in the process of addressing and combating this vitriolic attack against our members.
How you men and women continue to police in this incredibly challenging time, in an environment where our politicians have set us up for failure, is an incredible testament to the genuine loyalty you have to your oath and to the people of New York. It is just another example of why you are so deservedly referred to as "The Leaders of the Finest".
