News from the NYSTPBA Board of Directors, November 27, 2022







NYSTPBA Newsletter News from the NYSTPBA Board of Directors By now, many of you have probably read the inflammatory article published by a Buffalo-area newspaper regarding Troopers’ disciplinary records. While we won’t dignify or legitimize the article by sending out a link to it, we will share the statement that was sent to the authors of the article. The New York State Troopers PBA (NYSTPBA) condemns the recent so-called reporting by local media outlets gossiping about the disciplinary records of New York State Troopers. It is disappointing that local media outlets have chosen to sink to such low standards by peddling tabloid journalism to increase their audience. The one fact that can be highlighted in the latest tawdry attempt to re-sensationalize detailed personnel files is that the New York State Police takes its discipline process seriously. While we understand and appreciate the need for transparency in law enforcement, republishing a weeks-old story as clickbait material casts a shadow upon legitimate journalism. The NYSTPBA will continue to work with Division on solutions to try to prevent this from happening in the future. This email is an automated notification, which is unable to receive replies.
