New York City taxpayers have shelled out nearly half a billion dollars in NYPD-related settlements over the past five years.

What, five or so settlements a day?

Each officer is responsible for ~$12,423 in settlements since 2009. Each officer is responsible for ~15 civil violation each day since 2009.

Fun with numbers.

How many NYPD cops were shown the door for costing the taxpayers this much money.
