New York City Reassigning 600 Unit Officers To Other Duties

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York Police Department will immediately reassign some 600 plainclothes officers in its anti-crime unit to other duties, including its detective bureau and community policing, Commissioner Dermot Shea said on Monday.

The move, which follows a number of policing overhauls signed into law last week by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, is designed to modernize the country’s largest police force and build trust with communities amid heightened racial tension, Shea said.
