Cops in all ranks will be out in full force over the weekend — with gorgeous weather in the forecast — as part of the NYPD’s all-out blitz on social distancing offenders, The Post has learned.
The department will increase its presence in city parks, adding a number of cops ready to make arrests or issue summonses, police sources said.
Commanding officers in each of the department’s precincts are also being forced to work during the day on Saturday and Sunday, with their second-in-charge working nights to supervise the crackdown, according to police sources.
Sources said that City Hall was concerned about social distancing enforcement appearing anti-Semitic after a heavy police presence a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn for the second time this week.
News of the increased presence comes a day after City Hall assigned 1,000 workers to break up any unlawful gatherings through the Big Apple.
A spokeswoman for NYPD confirmed the added patrols, saying the department has added more than 1,000 additional officers out in the streets this weekend in anticipation of the warm weather.
The cops will be on foot and riding on bicycles to educate people on social distancing and make sure it’s being practiced, the spokesperson added.
