The New York Post reports:
The NYPD is putting together “DOA Teams” to help collect the mounting number of bodies from the coronavirus, The Post has learned.
In an email to cops Wednesday morning, police brass asked for volunteers from the detective unit to form citywide teams to collect those deemed dead on arrival, promising 60 hours of overtime per month for the grisly detail.
That’s twice the amount of OT allowed by the department under normal circumstances. “The idea of creating a Borough DOA Team is being looked at and we only want volunteers for it … no forcing anybody,” the message said. “It would be three teams (2 investigators per team).”
