New York Cop on Disability Pension Competes in Triathlons

Derek Huebner and Christopher DePaolis aren’t the only former New York cops riding high as the gravy train rolls on and on:

Rachel Niccoll, who spent 13 years on the force before retiring in 2009, receives the generous pension package that pays her $66,083 a year, plus benefits — and also regularly runs races in New York, records show.

Ostensibly she was forced to retire by a knee injury so severe that it would not even allow her to do desk work. However,

Online records show that three years after retirement she competed in the 2012 Harryman triathlon on Bear Mountain. At the 2013 Escape From Alcatraz triathlon she placed 50th in her age group. All told, Niccoll competed in at least eight triathlons, including in Thailand and Ireland. Numerous photos of her at finish lines are posted online.

Between 2013 and February 2015, she also competed in at least 15 running competitions in New York City — including the 2014 New York City Marathon, records show.

It’s not as if the NYPD can’t do anything about it.

Niccoll was hired in July 1996 — less than 20 years ago. Under pension rules, the department has the right to order retirees with disability pensions hired less than 20 years ago to return for a physical.

Unless she wants to forego her generous pension,

“They can bring her back immediately and give her a physical, and if she passes, they can put her back on the NYPD,” said a source familiar with the rules.

But in the Golden Age of Disability Benefits, that is not likely to happen.

    YAH, that’s what passes for “common sense” n NYC!

  • Giorgio Palmas

    New York’s swinest!

  • katya kakhov

    I see the Long Island Railroad has finally got their numbers for permanent injury disabilities retirees down from 99%

    This rugmunching grifter is more criminal than cop.

  • HarleyBobb

    He needs to learn how to burp. I thing he has a gas build up, and if he’s not careful he’ll blow!

  • 762×51

    That’s terrible! He didn’t leave any donuts for the others.

    I’m surprised, I didn’t even know they made duty bets in size 75. As a sergeant, he has a “leadership” role. Apparently there is no annual fitness qual for that department.

    I wonder how many times that Glock has gotten caught in his armpit when he draws?

  • 762×51

    That’s fuel for his afterburner, otherwise, he never finishes the 40.

  • BostonLiberty

    She should pay back all of the pension she has received for the ‘disability’. What a lowlife POS.

  • Auburn Rapunzel

    It looks like his career has gone…pear-shaped.

    I’ll be here all week.

  • grayjohn

    Put the smirking, thieving, bitch in jail for 20 years.

  • Appalled By The World

    How lovely. No wonder nobody can afford to live there anymore.

  • 762×51

    He only got into the police academy because they graded his entrance test score on the Bell curve.

  • MicahStone

    Let me take a wild guess: she’s a d-cRAT !!!!!

  • MicahStone

    Don’t forget: cops are UNION MEMBERS – she must be particularly devote to the cause !!!!

  • Auburn Rapunzel

    I don’t know. I think you’re implying that his score was inflated, but that’s a re-butt-able presumption…

    Just a gut feeling.

  • Jack

    White trash ho ripping off the taxpayers

  • Jack

    He ate the doughnut maker.

  • 762×51

    Not at all, I have it on good authority that his scores were a little squishy around the middle and that when questioned about it, he became very cheeky due to an inflated eggo. It really got him bent out of shape. He almost got kicked out because they mistook his weight for his phone number.

  • 762×51

    and the doughnut makers entire family and their house.

  • sgt524

    Not NYPD, look at the Patch, my guess Philadelphia. Obviously scrambling
    had an effect on her girth.

  • Henry

    Where’s Tanya Harding when you need her?

    Dream job: Lifetime disability.
    Wake up New Yorkers! You’re paying for this miserable PoS to thrive on your own money. Are you really that stupid (rhetorical; yeah, most Northeasterners are pretty damn stupid, when you get right down to it).
    The least the NYPD can do is get all their money back and fire the bitch!
