Report: Mayor de Blasio to Meet With NYPD Union Chiefs

By    |   Monday, 29 Dec 2014 08:42 PM

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will meet with police union bosses on Tuesday in an effort to repair a rift between his office and the NYPD.

The New York Daily News reports that the meeting will involve the mayor, Patrolmen's Benevolent Association chief Patrick Lynch, and the heads of the four other police unions that represent New York City officers.

The meeting, the Daily News reports, is scheduled for 2 p.m. and will not be open to the press.

On the docket is "fostering a constructive and responsible dialogue," a City Hall official told the Daily News.

The mayor was at Madison Square Garden on Monday to speak at a graduation ceremony for 884 new NYPD officers. One person in the audience heckled him and a few others turned their backs as he spoke, echoing the protest by thousands of police officers at an NYPD officer's funeral over the weekend.

Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were shot dead execution-style while they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn more than a week ago. Ramos' funeral took place on Saturday, and officers present turned their backs while de Blasio spoke.

De Blasio has been criticized for what some say was his support for anti-police protests that followed a Ferguson, Missouri, police shooting of an unarmed black man. Protests erupted across the country after a grand jury ruled that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson should not face charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown, 18.
