    NYPD Expected To Lose Record Number Of Officers This Year


    The NYPD's rank and file is shrinking, as a record 3,000 police officers are expected to leave the force this year.

    The number of officers retiring or changing jobs is up about 30 percent from last year and 50 percent from 1998.

    While the NYPD is losing employees, the city is also having trouble bringing in recruits. Union leaders and several top police brass have reluctantly suggested lowering standards as a way to get more recruits.

    Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that won't be necessary, adding the Police Department has waves of hiring and retiring.

    However, the NYPD is taking some steps to attract new members to the force, including dropping its $35 application fee and looking outside New York for applicants.

    What would you say the major reasons for so many changing careers are TrueBlue?

      I'm not TRUEBLUE, but I work on the island, and know many NYPD officers. The reasons are simpple. First and formost is salary. 31K a year to start just doesn't cut it in a city like NY. Second is moral support from within the dept. it doesn't exist. You can't write a parking ticket in NYC without getting blamed for being racist or discriminating against a person. Pure BS.

        Are many citing the September 11th atatcks as reasons for leaving the department also?

          Law Enforcement goes through a cyclical period every twenty years, thanks to fluctuations in hiring. We're in the middle of a buldge in the snake, so to speak.. a period when a lot of people who were hired together or cclose to each other are in that ready-to-retire period. They may or may not decide to go at the same time.
          My agency has felt it as well; we have had 5 out of 25 deputies retire in a matter of a couple of months.
          I would imagine that the political stresses of being in NYPD are right up there with being in LAPD.

            Maybe when Mr Kelly arrives things might get better.

              THE NYPD DID A MASS HIRING IN THE LATE 1980'S. AND MANY HAVE THEIR 20 YEARS AND THEY WANT TO COLLECT THERE PENISON AND GET ALL THE OVERTIME THEY CAN SO CAN LEAVE WITH A NICE NEST EGG. I HOPE THEY WILL GIVES US A RAISE SOON I KNOW I NEED IT. AFTER SEPT 11 THE POLICE ACADEMY LOST 125 CADATS. YOU NEED TO PAY PEOPLE IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO STAY.
              31K IS NOT THAT MUCH IN NYC
              I DID NOT TAKE JOB FOR MONEY. BUT I WOULD LIKE BUILD MY NEST EGG.

                Here's what I don't understand......... every retired NYCPD cop I've met in FL is making a pension waaaay over what I make to work. They tell me about how they were making 60K+ a year and they all buy huge homes and boats when they get here.

                Am I missing something?
