Nine Other NYPD Officers Reprimanded for Speaking Spanish

The NYPD could not immediately confirm the numbers of officers who have been reprimanded for breaking the policy, but Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is staning behind in support of the rule, stating that federal law dictates it. "It’s anti-discrimination laws that say that there is a English-only requirement in the workplace,” Kelly said.

Kelly also noted that no other disciplinary action against Guzman was put in place beyond putting the reprimand in her file.
