Gianaris bill to stop ticket quotas

From the NY Post:

Police brass pushing arrest and ticket quotas could find themselves in jail for up to a year under a bill that state Sen. Michael Gianaris plans to introduce tomorrow.

Backed by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the bill would make it illegal for supervisors to require cops to make a certain number of arrests over a specified period.

Noting that good officers are being punished, Gianaris (D-Queens) said, “This bill would increase the penalties when quotas are used to evaluate performance.”

How long is this going to go on? There was a ruling a few years ago making quotas illegal, and there was a finding that proved the NYPD bosses establish quotas to monitor police performance. What was done afterwards? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
I am telling you all here, the rank and file cops have been fighting this quota system for years. They have been fighting, losing, and then have been getting beaten down mercilessly. They need your help. Morale in the NYPD is shot to hell right now, and cops are leaving in droves. THAT is one of the main reasons why you don't see as many cops on patrol anymore.

You don't see cops on patrol because b-berg cut the department by 5000 cops to save $$$,but no cut to Welfare and other social programs.....
