NYPD ticket-fixing scandal spreads to Yonkers
The investigation into NYPD ticket-fixing has now spread to Yonkers, with a source telling The New York Post that a member of the NYPD contacted Yonkers' police department to fix a ticket as a favor.
A Bronx district attorney recently launched an investigation into the practice of ticket-fixing in the NYPD, and today's edition of The New York Post says wire taps reportedly picked up someone in the NYPD calling various departments, asking for tickets to be done away with, as a favor to family members and friends. In addition to Yonkers Police Department, the Port Authority and Triboro Bridge and Tunnel Authority were also reportedly contacted.
While the city has no hard information to go on, it is still looking into the allegations and a spokesman for Mayor Phil Amicone says he is anxious to find out how accurate the claim is. He also added if anyone has any information about ticket-fixing, to contact the Yonkers Police Internal Affairs unit.
