But their opposition to the proposal hasn’t stopped the union from endorsing Democrat Bill Thompson for mayor — who has said he supports the idea.

Michael Palladino, chief of the Detectives' Endowment Association, was asked by a reporter yesterday at a rally for Thompson whether the candidate’s support of the inspector general legislation weighed into the union’s decision to endorse him. “Obviously it didn’t,” Palladino replied.

Palladino is also the chairman of the Uniformed Workers of New York, which held the campaign rally to show their support for Thompson.

Thompson reiterated his support of the proposal for an independent police inspector general, as well as a modified form of stop-and-frisk.

"Stop-and-frisk — and I've said this before and I'll say it again — is a useful policing tool that's been misused and abused,” Thompson said as heads bobbed in agreement behind him.

In a prepared statement, Palladino praised Thompson, who has promised to add 2,000 officers to the police force.

"Bill Thompson is ready to lead our city and protect New Yorkers from day one,” he said in the statement.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, one of the city’s most influential police unions, has yet to endorse a candidate in the race.
