NY Post Editorial Board Hammers PANYNJ Police, Calls for Scrapping the Force

New York Post’s editorial board blast the performance and overtime costs of the port authority’s police department. Citing an in-depth article that appeared in the newspaper’s December 11 edition, the editors write, “Fifteen years after terrorists struck the Port Authority-owned World Trade Center, the very cops responsible for security at PA sites remain ‘a weak link’ in the area’s ‘public-safety profile.’” The solution proposed by the editors: “Scrap the PAPD and hand security duties to the New Jersey State Police and NYPD, which would likely do a better job at lower cost.”
