THE BRONX - Hundreds of NYPD officers attended a Supreme Court hearing today to support their fellow colleagues involved in an alleged tixet-fixing scheme.

More than a dozen NYPD officers have been accused of fixing traffic tickets for their colleagues, friends and family.

The Bronx district attorney is said to have been wiretapping the officers when they were allegedly fixing the tickets. The officers claim the wiretapping was illegal.

The officers say the district attorney's office should have brought the accused into their office and been told to stop the practice.

The officers are expected to return to court in late February.
