There have been 292 members of the force who suffered injuries as some of the demonstrations have seen violent clashes, cops said.
It’s unclear how many injuries are the result of confrontations with demonstrators.
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea had previously called for protesters to put a stop to the violence on cops.
“Violence has been used multiple times during what could have been and what should have been peaceful protests,” Shea said at a live-streamed press conference Thursday evening.
“Violence poisons the well of democracy. It has done so at a time when we so desperately need civil discourse about issues that all of us, black, white — all of us that we care so much about.”
