An NYPD officer was arrested after she tried to have a hitman hired to kill her ex-husband, a police official tells NBC 4 New York.
The official said Valerie Cincinelli, 34, tried to get her current boyfriend to hire a hitman. Cincinelli was arrested Friday by the FBI. NYPD Internal Affairs assisted in her arrest.
The officer previously worked out of the 106th Precinct in Queens, before being placed on modified duty in 2017 for an unrelated domestic incident, the police official said.
Before that though, she was an award-winning officer, including a "cop of the month" award from the Jamaica Rotary in June 2017.
Cincinelli, who joined the NYPD in 2007, was most recently in a unit known as VIPER that monitored security cameras. Read more at NBC NY
