NYPD looks for more arrests amid suspected work slowdown
There are signs that disgruntled officers have started making more low-level arrests, New York Police Department officials said Monday.
NYPD statistics show arrests were up in the past week after plummeting in the weeks following the fatal ambush of two patrolmen in December.
Ticketing for traffic and parking violations also increased after virtually coming to a halt.
Union officials have denied the numbers reflected a sanctioned work stoppage. But the numbers were seen as further evidence of growing rancor between the rank and file and Mayor Bill de Blasio.
