NYPD Requests Federal Assistance
Wednesday, December 30, 2009
New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Raymond Kelly says security for the upcoming trial of the September 11 terror attack suspects is going to cost much more than the initial estimate of $75 million dollars.
The NYPD says there aren't enough officers to handle trial security, so many existing officers will be paid overtime during the trial. Coming up with money to pay them is impossible without federal assistance, Commissioner Kelly said.
No trial date has yet been sent, nor has a decision been made on how the revenue to pay officers overtime will be generated.
