Bloomberg gives his NYPD bodyguards cushy private sector jobs

NEW YORK’S Mayor Mike Bloomberg is taking his trusted police bodyguards with him to the private sector next year — to ensure they don’t  blab any of his secrets, the New York Post claims.

“He is giving them plum jobs to keep their mouths shut,” a source tells the newspaper.

The move means the cops will all hit the jackpot — pocketing cushy pensions and new “six-figure salaries” to keep serving the outgoing mayor, whose eponymous business-media empire has made him the seventh-richest person in America.

Bloomberg’s new security team will comprise a current lieutenant and several detectives, all with more than 20 years on the force. They will file for retirement immediately after mayor-elect Bill de Blasio is sworn in on Jan. 1, sources said.

With public salaries of at least $120,000 each, they’ll all get pensions that amount to at least half that much — on top of their pay to keep working for Bloomberg, sources said.

“They’re all getting six-figure salaries,” one source said.
