NEW YORK (AP) — An indictment charging 16 New York City police officers and five others will be unsealed, following a lengthy investigation into allegations of police corruption including ticket-fixing, prosecutors and people familiar with the case have said.

Thirteen police officers, two sergeants and one lieutenant are among those who will be arraigned on Friday in Bronx state Supreme Court. Some of the charges allege the officers abused their authority by helping family and friends avoid paying traffic tickets, two people familiar with the case said Thursday.

Union officials have complained that the probe unfairly singles out officers for an unofficial practice that has been tolerated for years.

The case evolved from a low-profile wiretap of a Bronx officer suspected of having ties to a drug dealer.
