City Staff Ideas Challenge

Remove residency requirement for NYPD officers
Uniformed members of the NYPD are restricted to living in the five boroughs or a small handful of nearby NYS counties. I suggest the city remove this requirement, including letting officers live in New Jersey. This will:
1) Improve cost-of-living, quality-of-life, & morale for uniformed members of the NYPD;
2) Improve recruitment;
3) Be fairer & less intrusive for officers;
4) Reduce administrative costs to the NYPD by tracking compliance.

Conversation with Jesse Meyerson
If agency office workers who support all city work but don't interface directly with the public have to live in NYC, then uniformed officers absolutely should. They should be members of the community they are supposed to be protecting and serving, not imported. If someone from NJ wants to be a cop, let them be a cop in NJ. It's not a mercenary position, but should be one who cares about the people, not a paycheck and unmitigated authority over a foreign people.
I would completely be in favor of removing the residency requirement for ALL city employees. No employer should have the ability to restrict where their workers live.
Yeesh, well there's a red flag: you see the City as a mere employer and not the conduit of public service? No private employer should have the ability to restrict where their workers live, just as no private employer should have the ability to tax them or imprison them for violation of laws it created. My friend, do you simply just fundamentally disagree with the nature and function of a government? Work in the private sector and all of your issues will be resolved.
Amend to include all civil servants.
