New York – 7 NYPD officers are arrested in relation to an illegal gambling & prostitution ring

Seven police officers (3 sergeants, 2 detectives and 2 officers) from the New York Police Department were recently arrested on prostitution, corruption and misconduct charges in connection with an illegal gambling and prostitution ring in Brooklyn and Queens. They’ve been accused of providing protection for the criminal ring. Forty civilians were also arrested or are currently being sought in connection with the investigation. The arrests followed a lengthy three year investigation which began after an anonymous officer’s tip-off to the internal affairs unit.

“Today, those who swore an oath and then betrayed it have felt the consequences of that infidelity, The people of this department are rightly held to the highest standard, and should they fail to meet it, the penalty will be swift and severe.” said the police commissioner, James P. O’Neill in a statement.
