City restores 2 NYPD academy classes

Number of cops has shrunk to decades-low

Posted 4/26/24

With the NYPD’s headcount at a generational low and officer departures still running high, Mayor Eric Adams on Saturday announced the restoration of two police academy classes that had been canceled as part of budget cuts late last year.
