NYC police commish: More than 50 reported threats against NYPD since killing of two officers

New York City is “investigating reports of over 50 incidents of reported threats against [city police] officers since the death of . . . two officers this past weekend,” city police commissioner Bill Bratton said. “We’ve closed out more than half of them, with nine arrests being made, and we’ll continue to investigate the others.”
