This academy is not going to win any awards.
The NYPD’s brand-new, $750 million supposedly state-of-the-art Police Academy in Queens now has a water contamination problem —-just months after the building’s high-tech gym floor buckled and needed to be replaced.
Thirsty cops and recruits were handed bottled water on Friday, after officials deemed the building’s water unsafe to sip on, according to documents obtained by The Post.
NYPD Chief Surgeon Dr. Eli Kleinman warned that the water shouldn’t be used for washing dishes or showering either, until a further investigation.
Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins called the situation “troubling” — and said he’d received numerous calls from concerned cops.
“They seemed to think there’s E. coli in the water,” he told The Post.
