Brooklyn, NY - The close relationship between a disgraced police chief and two prominent businessmen apparently stretches back several years with both being allowed privileges that typically would not have been afforded to civilians.

As the former head of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, Deputy Inspector James Grant allowed both Jeremy Reichberg and Jona Rechnitz to park in his private spot, according to The New York Post.

Grant, who most recently headed up the 19th Precinct on the Upper East Side, was disciplined yesterday by the NYPD and placed on modified duty for accepting gifts from the pair as previously reported on VIN News.

Grant, who is not Jewish, kept a mezuza affixed to his doorpost while he was at the 72nd Precinct and Reichberg was also allowed to attend roll call at the precinct on one occasion.  Renovations to Grant’s office, as well as repairs to the station houses’ gym, are believed to have been funded by Reichberg and Rechnitz.

Police did not respond to questions about who paid for those renovations which are supposed to be done through the NYPD’s Building Maintenance Unit.

The friendship between the three men extended beyond the walls of the station house.  Reichberg was present for Grant’s daughter’s first communion and the three often shared meals and traveled together in the United States.

The investigation into the NYPD has served to create yet another point of contention between Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and his predecessor Raymond Kelly. 

A report in today’s Daily News said that Bratton claimed that he was informed of the ongoing investigation when he first took office while according to sources, Kelly said that his administration had nothing to do with the corruption probe.

I believe its very important that the jewish community understands that those so called Orthodox accused of bribing police officers has NOTHING at all to do with the jewish communities those officers served. Mr. Reichberg and Mr. Rechnitz never represented the Boro Park ,Flatbush and Wmsbg. community. They were personal friends with those officers and it was all for Personal gain which they exchanged gifts and trips (according to NYpost reports).
The Boro Park community is well served by our loyal Askunim, Yanky Meyer, Yanky Daskal, Simce Bernath and many many other askunim who work very hard together with our prescient commanders to serve the needs of our communities.
Its about time that every one should learn a lesson that any Government agent is NOT allowed to accept any gifts or bribes and by offering them will only get them in deep water ...

I hope from now on any NYPD brass will think twice before getting involved with "activitists" who claim to represent us like FJCC, OJ PAC and all these new groups that sprung up in the last 5 years.

The ""so called Orthodox" characterization is known as the "No True Scotsman" fallacy.
