NYPD Brass Orders Phone Decals To Try To Curb Personal Use

NEW YORK (77WABC) — Top brass at the NYPD have ordered cops to attach stickers emblazoned with the letters “NYPD” to their work phones.

The idea is to try and curb personal calls and texting while on duty — but some officers are telling the department where they can stick it. Distribution of the decals comes several months after New York City Mayor Eric Adams told the public to snap a photo of any cops talking on their phones in subways.

The directive requiring the stickers was added to the NYPD’s patrol guide a day before Thanksgiving.
