JPMorgan Chase buys Police… NYPD Patrol Car Laptops & Security Monitoring Software – Just in time for Occupy WallStreet

Idly cruising websites the following story caught my attention:

From the website of JPMorgan Chase

NEW YORK CITY POLICE FOUNDATION — NEW YORK

From the end of 2010 through the first quarter of 2011, JPMorgan Chase donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the New York City Police Foundation, in the form of 1,000 new patrol car laptops, security monitoring software in the NYPD’s main data center, other technology resources, and funding. The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple.

New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing “profound gratitude” for the company’s donation.

“These officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe,” Dimon said. “We’re incredibly proud to help them build this program and let them know how much we value their hard work.”

Here’s the link that I got the story from, but it may not stay up so here’s a screenshot of the link:

It seems that JPMorgan Chase has purchased their very own police force just in time for #OccupyWallStreet – When I discussed this on my show last night, a listener asked “Why is no one talking about this?”

  1. The Article says “The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple.”

    The Article SHOULD say “The payoff was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to turn a blind eye to the donators”.
