Port Authority police say they are understaffed and are forced to leave critical infrastructure — such as the George Washington Bridge — unguarded at times.
The agency has cut about 100 officers over the past year and shifted its money and attention toward rebuilding the World Trade Center site, the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association said at the agency's meeting Thursday. Port Authority officials say the number was 140, but was made up of administrative workers, not officers.
