Philly commish: rotate officers in drug units

'It's not just an integrity issue,' Ramsey says, 'I think rotation is just good for rounding out one's career'

PHILADELPHIA — Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey will pursue a policy of rotating officers in narcotics units, an offshoot of the ongoing FBI inquiry into the conduct of investigators formerly assigned to drug enforcement.

Limiting how long an officer serves on a unit, however, will have to be negotiated with the police union. The current contract expires in June 2014, and Ramsey says he expects a fight.
