The head of the New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association resigned Tuesday after FBI agents raided SBA offices and his home in connection with a federal investigation, Granthshala News has learned.
Ed Mullins resigned at the request of the union’s board, amid allegations he misappropriated union funds.
“Given the gravity of this matter and the uncertainty of its outcome, the SBA Executive Board has requested that Chairman Mullins resign from his position as SBA President,” the board said in a letter to the union membership.

The newspaper reported that FBI agents confiscated computer gear from the residence and boxes containing documents were taken out of the union’s Manhattan headquarters.
Granthshala News has contacted Mullins and Union for comment.
Mullins was already under investigation for posting online the arrest report of Chiara, the 25-year-old daughter of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, after she was detained during a June 2020 demonstration in response to the death of George Floyd .
He also came under fire for calling a city official and city council member by derogatory names. The hearing of the case related to the posting of the arrest report was to take place last month, but was postponed as Mullins’ lawyer faced a medical emergency.
According to the Post, testing is scheduled to resume on October 27.
Mullins, the union leader representing 11,000 NYPD members, has been a frequent, outspoken critic of de Blasio’s administration and wrote a piece for MailOnline over the summer as the mayor’s term nears its end.
