A retired Police Department inspector who was hired by Mayor Eric Adams earlier this year while he was also collecting a police pension and working as the top security official at Resorts World New York City casino has left his casino job, according to a statement Sunday from the company.
The news that the retired inspector, Timothy Pearson, will leave the post was announced days after The New York Times reported his hiring by Mr. Adams under an unusual arrangement that allowed him to collect a city salary and keep his job with Resorts World, which has been seeking to expand its gambling offerings in New York City.
“Tim is a distinguished hero who served the city for many years as a leader at N.Y.P.D.
Tim used those same skills to keep our facility and community safe for over a decade,” the statement from Resorts World said.
“We support his decision to lend his expertise to the city in its pursuit of making our streets safer, and we wish him well.”
