“Officers who have misconduct claims brought against them may see their premium go up and will be required to pay those costs. The purpose of this bill is to establish a financial disincentive for police misconduct and create accountability for abhorrent behavior,” sayeth Senator Biaggi.

I agree. It is absolutely necessary for these officers to have an incentive to behave. Without accountability. their misdeeds have continued. I also find it disturbing that when they are fired from one police station they are still eligible to be hired at another one. If you get fired from McDonalds you can’t go to another McDonalds. I am glad that New York is taking this step.
