The city wants to keep the public from seeing the guns, blades and drugs seized at public schools — and threatened to punish any school safety officer who leaks photos of the contraband, The Post has learned.
The head of the officers’ union charged that the order came straight from Mayor de Blasio, who promised to bring more transparency to city government, but has been slammed by critics for doing the opposite.
“This is another attempt by Mayor de Blasio to keep the public in the dark about what’s going on in the schools. This is coming from City Hall,” said Gregory Floyd, head of Teamsters Local 237, which represents school safety agents. “He wants to fudge the numbers.”
