  • Breaking News NYPD planning to hire 4000 cops over the next four years

    http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/...d_nearly_.html



    More than 3,900 new police officers could soon be working in New York City, thanks to extra federal funding.

    Approximately 400 cops could be hired in the next few months as part of the $1 billion set aside for new police officers in President Obama's economic stimulus package, Rep. Anthony Weiner said yesterday.

    The proposed Obama budget also includes federal funding for an additional 3,500 cops the city could hire over the next four years.

    The federal government would pick up 75% of the funding for those new hires as part of the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program.

    "Our safety challenges can't take a backseat to our economic ones," said Weiner (D-Brooklyn, Queens).

    "The COPS program is a proven winner, cutting crime and making neighborhoods safe in New York City."

    The extra funds could offset last month's news that the NYPD was being forced by the city's fiscal crisis to cancel its 2010 rookie class, eliminating 1,000 positions

          This week's issue of The Chief (NYC's Civil Service Newspaper) also mentioned the stimulus would be paying for an additional "440" officers to be hired.

          Keeping my fingers crossed that translates to a July Class in the 700's.

                      being on foot is cool too, but it gets boring after a while. I like picking up jobs and most of the time the jobs are 15blocks away from post. Also on foot you kind of get to do what you want since you're not a slave to the radio. it has it bad things and good things about it.

                        Great point. Another thing is where is all of this money going to come from to keep these cops for the remainder of there career. Yeah its nice to have money to hire these cops but will there be money to keep these cops when they reach top pay if the city hasn't recovered by then. Or will they be laid off.

                            No one knows the answer of what exam they will be going up to. According to their site they will be making it to 7011, I highly doubt even if we have a huge class that will change much.

                              This is cool and all but it means classes will be around 500 each for the next 4 years. If you are taking a test now, you will be waiting for a LONG time IMO.
