NEW YORK (WABC) -- There are disturbing claims from a police veteran that the NYPD intentionally tried to under report crime rates.
He claims, in an exclusive television interview, that in one precinct in Queens, the severities of some crimes were systematically downgraded.
Sergeant Borrelli is the latest in a growing list of police officers to claim widespread manipulation of NYPD crime data. In 2010, Officer Adrian Schoolcraft told Eyewitness News it happened all the time in the 81st Precinct.
"I recorded multiple down-grading of crimes, crime reports from citizens who were victims," Schoolcraft said.
And there was Officer Polanco from the 41st Precinct.
"An assault would be downgraded to a violation, harassment, a shooting would be downgraded to a reckless endangerment," Polanco said.
