We thought the closing of the press shack was bad. Now the NYPD says it will close a discount day care center that has been providing childcare for two decades to overworked parents in the NYPD.
The NYPD Office of Management and Budget has requested that the day care center at One Police Plaza, called the Finest Child Care Center, vacate the three basement rooms it utilizes on September 30, 2009 and close its doors to the 30 children in attendance.
Women comprise 18 percent of the police force; many of them, obviously, have to find somewhere to put their children when they go to work.
The kids and their parents protested the decision yesterday, wearing “Please Don’t Close My School” t-shirts.
