New York City mayor Eric Adams has called on NYPD cops assigned at Queens to do their job and not be abusive to the community.
Adams and former NYPD captain-turned-politician and newly minted Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell paid a visit to the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica on New Year’s Day.
He said if NYPD police officers will perform their job well he will protect and help them at all times.
However, if NYPD police officers will be abusive he will make sure they are out of the department within 90 days.
“I’m going to have your backs. But if you are abusive to my community, I’m going to make sure you don’t serve in my department and you don’t hurt your fellow officers,” Adams said.
“What I’m going to promise my officers is I’m going to allow you to do your job, and I will protect you when you do your job, but if you are abusive in my city, you are going to be out of the department within 90 days,” Adams added.
It can be recalled that during the campaign trail, Adams vowed to stop the surging crimes in the Big Apple.
Now that he is mayor, Adams is starting to fulfill his campaign promise of keeping New Yorkers safe from harm.
