Ban on Police Smoking in Public Is Rescinded

January 27, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A rule barring Philadelphia police officers from smoking while on duty or in uniform has been rescinded by interim Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson.

In October, Johnson's predecessor ordered the ban after a photograph showed an officer smoking as he helped lift a man in a wheelchair outside a burning building.

But the police union complained to the state's labor relations board.
