NYPD to Form Unit to Investigate Ticket Fixing Claims

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

In response to the alleged ticket-fixing scandal, the NYPD is creating a special unit to deal with the claims.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the unit will ensure that parking and other low-level tickets find their way through the court system.

This comes after the Bronx district attorney launched an investigation into more than 40 officers in 12 precincts who may be involved in ticket fixing.

There have not been any criminal charges filed, and the NYPD is conducting an internal investigation.
