(WaPo)The heads of the five major unions representing members of the New York City Police Department warned that 10,000 unvaccinated police officers were “set to be pulled from [the] streets” as a Nov. 1 vaccine mandate deadline for New York City employees passed.

So far, the number is 34.

Fewer than three dozen uniformed officers out of about 35,000 were placed on unpaid leave on Monday when the deadline expired, in addition to 40 civilian NYPD staff out of roughly 17,000, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a news conference.

Many more await a decision from the city on their requests for religious or medical exemptions, Shea said. In total, 85 percent of NYPD staff are vaccinated, he added.



The 15 percent who are unvaccinated (including those with a religious or medical exemptions) represent about 5000 officers and others of NYPD. That's half the number that the unions warned would quit or be forced to leave the force.

    Yikes!

    Amazing!!

    A union negotiating by overstating its case. This has to be the first time that has ever happened?

    Still, it appears that the fat lady has yet to sing.

    (CBS News)The pandemic has taken a devastating toll on police departments across the country. COVID-19 is now killing more law enforcement officers than any other threat they face in the line of duty — 716 officers have died since March 2020, according to the Fraternal Order of Police.
