NYPD probing at least one cop who may have attended DC riots



The NYPD is probing at least one officer who may have attended the deadly riot at the US Capitol last week, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Monday.

“I can tell you that there is one investigation that is active on one member. There is no name yet released because we don’t know yet if it’s true or not, but I can tell you that anyone committing crimes certainly would have a very short shelf life with the NYPD,” Shea said on NY1.

The news comes two days after the FBI contacted the FDNY about a member of the department possibly attending the siege in DC.

The NYPD is expected to send 200 cops to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20 after the DC mayor asked for extra help with security in the wake of the mayhem caused by the pro-Trump mob.
