City cops leaving in record numbers

Posted 8/5/22

City cops are leaving at a rate not seen in years, with the NYPD down to 34,422 officers as of earlier this month, the lowest, by average headcount, in more than a decade. 

Significantly, 909 officers had voluntarily left or officially announced their intention to leave the department through the first six months of the year, a considerably higher number than anytime in recent years. Last year, 530 had resigned through June 30; the year before, 347 had left voluntarily through the first six months.
