Mayor Adams slammed his own police department Wednesday for engaging in “all this showy stuff” instead of directing more cops to the neighborhoods that need them the most.

He also revealed he’s still undecided on whether he’ll order a cost savings regimen for the NYPD — and suggested his decision would depend on the department’s ability to more efficiently and effectively deploy cops.

“Here’s my problem with the NYPD,” he said. “You hired … a police officer to be on patrol to go after the bad guys — that was why you hired him. He should not be sitting in the license division. His dangerous day should not be a paper cut. He needs to be on patrol.”

This is a modal window.
