Bronx Robbery Squad Officer and Yonkers resident Alisa Bajraktarevic, 33, is under investigation for attempting to stop an alleged drug bust involving her boyfriend–suspected to be a “major player” on the local narcotics scene.
According to the New York Post, sources allege that Bajraktarevic, “caused such a commotion during a car stop on Saturday that cops had to call for backup.”
Although details of Bajraktarevic’s encounter with police are few, two police sources who spoke with reporters at the New York Post described the events of the alleged incident–and her boyfriend’s suspected criminal history.
“Narcotics had been watching him,” the first police source said.
“One day they pulled him over. They didn’t know who [Bajraktarevic] was until she stepped up and said who she was.”
“She jumped out and got involved,” the second police source said. “She definitely gave them a hard time. They called in for backup.”
“He’s a really bad guy and known to the department,” the first police source said.
While police let her boyfriend go without conducting a search of his vehicle, the first police source stated that an Internal Affairs Bureau complaint was filed against Bajraktarevic, followed by a probe into her conduct.
Involvement with a Known Criminal
As a result of Bajraktarevic’s alleged conduct during the incident and suspicion that she is in a romantic relationship with a known criminal, she was moved to a desk role and stripped of her firearms.
During their training, and as part of their oath to uphold the law, police officers are warned not to consort with known criminals. Sources allege that Bajraktarevic met her boyfriend at the gym, and that she had been warned previously not to associate with him.
“It’s a dumb thing to do,” the first police source said. “This person eventually is going to use you as a get-out-of-jail card, which is what he did.”
Bajraktarevic Denies Drug-Dealer Claim
Although police have not released details about the case and sources could not confirm Bajraktarevic’s boyfriend’s name or criminal history, Bajraktarevic denied her boyfriend’s “drug-dealer” status.
In a phone call with the New York Post, Bajraktarevic spoke briefly about the investigation.
“There’s certain things I’m not allowed to speak on as per the department,” she said. “But the alleged drug dealer? That’s not under investigation. He’s not a drug dealer.”
When asked about the investigation, the NYPD would only confirm her modified desk role.
Bajraktarevic has been a member of the NYPD for 11 years, formerly of the Bronx‘s 48th Precinct. Payroll records from 2022 show her total salary and overtime of $115,250.
