A damaging report released by BuzzFeed News on Monday revealed that a large number of NYPD officers have committed fireable offenses but maintained their employment. This discovery was made through hundreds of internal police files obtained by BuzzFeed from an anonymous source.
At least 319 officers from 2011 to 2015 have committed crimes that include lying, cheating, stealing, or assaulting New York City residents. The alarming article shows that at least 50 employees lied on record or under an oath of some kind; 38 were found guilty of using excessive force; 57 had been driving under the influence, and several were accused of inappropriate behavior relating to sexual harassment—including one officer who touched and kissed a student while on duty at a school.
