Bob Hennelly on Police Murders
Monday, December 19, 2011
WNYC senior reporter Bob Hennelly discusses the spike in police officers murders in 2010 nationally and what the trend is so far this year. This spike comes as officers are being laid off and department spending reduced nationwide. He’ll also talk about the 75th precinct overnight tour that Officer Figowski worked from 2002 until his murder on Monday—the 75 precinct in East New York had the highest murder rate in the City. Figowski's funeral is being held Monday.
