According to Myles Miller of Spectrum News NY, several NYPD officers have been arrested for their part in a prostitution ring.
At least 7 officers were arrested; 3 sergeants, two detectives, and two officers. They are believed to have been providing protection for the operation.
“Today, those who swore an oath and then betrayed it have felt the consequences of that infidelity. The people of this Department are rightly held to the highest standard, and should they fail to meet it, the penalty will be swift and severe. I thank Deputy Commissioner Joseph Reznick for the thorough investigation performed by the Internal Affairs Bureau, in partnership with the Queens District Attorney’s Office, in rooting out this illicit activity. His unit initiated this probe and in doing so, has sent a clear message: there is no place in the NYPD for criminal or unethical behavior.”
