Standing together for greatest good

By John Amato

The recent PBA delegate meeting in Queens was interrupted by several upset members who voiced their legitimate concerns regarding safety issues for police officers. There has to be unity among the PBA and its president, Pat Lynch, so that a unified front can be presented to the commissioner and the mayor with regard to all issues of concerns from the police.

Our police officers are very hardworking and dedicated to doing their jobs, and protecting the people of this city is one of them. They do an excellent job and must certainly have all the necessary equipment that can be used to help protect them.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the NYPD, and as citizens, we must support them. Hopefully, whatever disagreement that some union members have with Pat Lynch will be rectified for the good of all concerned. Collaboration, not confrontation, is what we need in this situation.
