Over 2,500 officers have left the New York Police Department in 2023, with workload cited as a leading factor.

The department saw over 1,000 officers quitting before pension eligibility, and the Police Benevolent Association president emphasized the impact of staffing reductions on officers.

Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Hendry said, “The workload is a leading factor driving people away from the job.”

“If the NYPD is going to survive these staffing reductions, it cannot just keep squeezing cops for more hours,” added the union president.

The workload, long hours, and fatigue from protests were highlighted as reasons for leaving the force.

“I keep in contact with the guys that I was in the police academy with and we all have the same notion,” an officer told a reporter for the NY Post.

Adding, “I think maybe 95 percent of us are planning on leaving.”

“We’ve been working an average of about 13 to 14 hours a day with a lot of the protests happening in the city,” confirmed a second officer.

“Enough is enough,” he exclaimed.

“I’ll have maybe one day off for the week and I’m so tired from work I don’t want to do anything,” lamented the officer.
