NYPD cops reportedly furious over being given fewer 'get out of jail free' cards to hand out to friends
The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, the largest labor union representing NYPD cops, has slashed the number of "get out of jail free" cards it hands out to 20 from 30 for current cops and to 10 from 20 for retired police officers, the New York Post reports.
The cards are reportedly given to police officers, who distribute them among friends or family — or sell them on eBay. Holders can present them to the police in hopes getting out of minor infractions and avoiding legal trouble.
Current and former NYPD members are reportedly furious about the change.
