The Detectives’ Endowment Association Calls on Mayor Bill de Blasio to Fire
Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot
New York, New York – The Detectives’ Endowment Association, Inc. is aware of the New York City Health Commissioner’s shameful remarks regarding the distribution of personal protective equipment to members of the NYPD, as seen in the New York Post.
“The Detectives’ Endowment Association is calling on Mayor de Blasio immediately to fire Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot for not only her despicable remarks, but for endangering our men and women in blue who are tirelessly protecting New Yorkers during this pandemic,” said Detectives’ Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo. “A so-called City leader, Dr. Barbot showed her true colors as a cop-hater. Brave NYPD Detectives died as the DEA searched for protective equipment to purchase for our members while we waited for the City to distribute masks. Dr. Oxiris Barbot’s shameful behavior likely contributed to the further spread of this deadly virus. She has brought great shame to New York City government and every medical professional who is courageously fighting the Coronavirus pandemic alongside our cops.”
The Detectives’ Endowment Association, Inc. is the labor union proudly serving 20,000 active and retired New York City Police Detectives.
