Action Kid is on the case

Second NYPD whistleblower testifies he was called a 'rat' for protesting stop-and-frisk quotas

A second NYPD whistleblower testified Wednesday that department brass pressured cops for arrests and stop-and-frisk quotas and that he was smeared as a “rat” for bucking the system.

Officer Pedro Serrano said he was ostracized for protesting the quotas demanded at the 40th Precinct in the South Bronx. “They said, ‘Hey, this is the way it is, you can’t fight a losing battle,’” Serrano testified in Manhattan Federal Court.

Serrano, 43, a member of the police force since 2004, followed Officer Adhyl Polanco to the witness stand in the class-action lawsuit against the controversial stop-and-frisk tactics.

Like Polanco, Serrano said the quota demanded by supervisors is 20 summonses and one arrest a month. He did not specify how many stop-and-frisks he was required to make.

He also backed Polanco’s claim that the quota system had the support of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

Serrano testified that he was once criticized by supervisors for failing to make any stop-and-frisks in a month when he surpassed his quota, issuing 20 summonses and making three arrests.

NYPD Housing Boss Mocked 'Spanish Hair,' Women and Minorities, Cop Claims

THROGS NECK — A NYPD officer plans to sue the city for $15 million, saying she has been the victim of a racially and sexually charged work environment since 2011.

Eunice Vilaseca claims her supervisor at the NYPD's Housing Bureau in the Bronx, Lt. Dennis Azambuja, repeatedly discriminated against her and other minority employees while other supervisors ignored or condoned his actions, according to a notice of claim her lawyers filed March 14.

According to the notice of claim, Azambuja — who works at NYPD's Public Service Area 8 at the Throggs Neck Houses — announced that he had a “Hit List” of African American and Hispanic workers he disliked for their ethnicity. He also made offensive comments about Vilaseca's "Spanish hair," and “openly referred to females as ‘Bit--es’" in the workplace, according to the notice of claim filed by the Sanders Firm.
