New numbers released Monday revealed that 4,690 arrests had been made during the week ending Jan. 11, compared to 2,401 between Dec. 29 and Jan. 4, the New York Times reported.
That number still pales in comparison to the 7,508 arrests made during the same week last year, but indicates police officers have heeded last week’s stern message from Commissioner William Bratton.
Bratton told police commanders and union leaders that he expected an end to the slowdown, which took place following the shooting of two officers in apparent retaliation for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown
