    How can NYPD School Safety join your union?

    This is all bullshit. This reminds of the days when Bill Jenkins was President back in the 80s. CWA 1182 & Teamsters Local 237 do not represent anyone in law enforcement. Let me ask this question what has 237 & 1182 done to get officers uniform status, arms, centralization, residency rules like NYPD, and the hiring of Caucasian and Asian Americans to the ranks? Nothing, and nothing will be done now and in the future.
