NYPD Official: More Arrests Coming In Corruption Scandal

More people will be arrested as a result of the wide-ranging federal probe into police corruption, an NYPD official said Friday — two days after the city correction-union boss was busted as part of the investigation.

“There will be charges in the future, but we’re not going to get into the time frame today,” Lawrence Byrne, the Police Department’s deputy commissioner for legal matters, said during a press conference at 1 Police Plaza.

The feds and the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau are “aggressively pursuing a number of leads,” he said.

Byrne’s comments come two days after Norman Seabrook, longtime head of the city correction-officers union, was arrested by the feds on charges he took a $60,000 kickback to invest $20 million in pension money in a risky hedge fund.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said last month that the two-year joint probe would “probably result in criminal indictments.”
