Investigators say de Blasio misused NYPD security on family matters; mayor’s office calls report ‘unprofessional’

The Department of Investigation (DOI) announced a completed review of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s alleged use of NYPD protection during his failed 2020 presidential bid, finding that he used up to $319,000 of city resources which were not reimbursed by his campaign.

De Blasio was found to have ordered his NYPD detail to transport campaign staff without him being present, something the agency deemed inappropriate, along with the use of city resources to move his daughter, Chiara de Blasio, to a new residence.
