A disturbing new survey has revealed that more than half of New York City police officers wish that they’d never joined the force.

The New York Post reported that an internal New York Police Department survey of nearly 6,000 officers found that 56% of NYPD cops say they wouldn’t become a police officer if they had a chance to do it all over again. When asked if they were disrespected by the public, 46% of officers believed they are disrespected versus 42% who said that they were not. When asked if the public distrusts them, 44% agreed while 41% disagreed.

A whopping 73% of the cops who responded said that the public does not have a good relationship with the NYPD. On top of that, 80% of NYPD officers, detectives, sergeants, lieutenants, and captains are hesitant to aggressively fight crime because of the ramifications of criminal liability, being sued, or being unfairly disciplined.

“My retirement date is next month,” said one 20-year veteran of the NYPD. “I can’t wait to run out of here. The city is absolutely not safe at all. Bail reform. Criminals being released. Everyone knows what’s going on.”

“The far-left leaning politics are absolutely destroying the city of New York,” added a cop who has been on the force for 16 years.

When it comes to the future of New York City, 79% said that they don’t think New York will be safer in two years.

“New York City police officers are well past our breaking point, and Mayor de Blasio and the outgoing City Council are still piling on with policies that punish cops and erode public safety,” said Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch. “The intolerable environment and our substandard pay has every cop looking to get out as soon as they can.”

Many NYPD officers are fleeing to other states where they will get more respect. The city of Lakeland, Florida has even started a social media campaign appealing to New York City earlier this year and dispatched a team of recruiters to Times Square. Fourteen officers have since ditched the NYPD to make the move to Lakeland.

“It was almost like I was ashamed to be a law enforcement officer” in New York. He added that Florida offered him the ‘tools and laws’ to allow him to do his job,” former NYPD cop Matthew Spoto said during a press conference with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R).

A report released earlier this year found that over 5,300 NYPD officers, which is approximately 15% of the force, retired or put in their papers to leave in 2020.
