IAB Ticket Fixing Probe Goes to Bronx Grand Jury

Saturday, April 09, 2011

Law enforcement sources confirm that dozens of officers, including some Patrolmen's Benevolent Association delegates, will have to explain to a Grand Jury what they know about an alleged ticket fixing scheme in the Bronx.

The charges surfaced last year as a result of an investigation by the New York Police Department's Internal Affairs Bureau. In October, The New York Daily News reported ticket fixing allegations surfaced when IAB was investigating allegations that an NYPD officer had ties to a local drug dealer.

Last year, the IAB audited all tickets originating out of the twelve NYPD Bronx Precinct commands. Now the IAB has referred their findings to the Bronx District Attorney.  Earlier this year, the NYPD made changes to the ticket issuing system to make them less vulnerable to manipulation.
