    STATEMENT FROM ONE HUNDRED BLACK MEN, INC. OF NEW YORK ON COMMISSIONER BRATTON’S REMARKS ON HIRING POLICE OFFICERS OF COLOR


    On June 10, 2015 NYC Police Commissioner William Bratton released a statement concluding that, 'It is hard to hire black cops because too many have criminal histories.' This unfortunate statement made by the commissioner of the largest police department in the country sends the wrong message to the African American community. The One Hundred Black Men of New York have worked for more than a half century developing Black leaders who focus on providing solutions. We are calling on the Commissioner to establish and maintain an ongoing dialogue with the Black community in NYPD's efforts to recruit officers of color. That would be a meaningful step toward identifying a pool of candidates who DO qualify for NYPD employment.
