  • Last week, the number of retired agents more than quadrupled last year

New York police have reportedly set a limit on the number of retirement applications that it allows its agents to file, following a rapid wave of police officers who have left the force amid cutbacks and clashes with protesters.

In the past week, the number of retired agents has more than quadrupled in this period last year, with the exodus reportedly causing such backlogs in applications that the department is struggling to meet demand.

Many of the officers who hang their insignia have cited a ‘disrespect’ from the public during national protests against police brutality following George Floyd’s death, and a loss of overtime due to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s $ 1 billion to the department as the reason, the NY Post reported.

The NYPD said on Wednesday that 179 agents filed an unemployment claim between June 29 and July 6 – a stunning 411 percent increase from the 35 who retired in the same period last year.

The apparent evacuation comes as an astonishing 503 police officers reportedly retired between May 25 – the day of the murder of the Floyd police force – and July 3, according to the department.

That figure represents a 75 percent increase over the 287 police officers who retired in the same period in 2019.

According to the PostA row of officers was spotted outside One Police Plaza on Tuesday, filing and processing pension paper.

“Apparently, the retirement department only takes a certain number of people a day and I think they will be supported until the end of July, early August,” an agent told the outlet. “That’s why you don’t see 100 a day, because they only do 35 to 40 a day by appointment.”

A department spokesman confirmed the wave of retirement claims. “While the decision to retire is a personal one and can be attributed to a range of factors, it is a troubling trend that we are closely following,” she told the Post.

Another agent told the outlet, “There are just tons of people retiring. But it’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job? Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do? ‘

The source said the overtime flood that the agents of last month’s protests received – which would increase retirement benefits – and the expected loss of future overtime due to cuts to the NYPD are also likely to be a key factor.

The NYPD said on Wednesday that 179 police officers filed for unemployment between June 29 and July 6 - a staggering 411 percent increase on 35 retired in the same period last year.

A Brooklyn-based officer said, “You have to be crazy to stay on a job where you lose money, are abused by the people you are trying to protect and are not appreciated by the politicians.”

In a statement, Pat Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association, accused lawmakers who he said have “completely dismantled our justice system.”

Lynch attributed the apparent stream of police pension claims to “the question with every police officer: how should we do our work in this environment?”

“And now that the crime is no longer under control, they want to blame us for it,” he added. “Whether we have been working for twenty or just two years, police officers are tired of trying to solve these mixed reports. Many of us look elsewhere. ‘

The NYPD has not yet returned a request for comment from DailyMail.com.
