DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROBLEM FOR NYC COPS
New York Times
November 1, 1998
...A review of department records shows that officers found guilty of domestic abuse in administrative proceedings are rarely fired... Already this year, the Police Department has received 821 complaints of domestic abuse by officers... Donald Sheehan of the FBI, a special agent coordinating the bureau's effort to reduce family violence by officers, said:
"New York hasn't been able to get a grip on the problem. What it takes is a commitment from the highest level of the department, and we just haven't seen that yet."
