Mayor Bloomberg may be taking his most trusted NYPD bodyguards with him to the private sector, in an attempt to buy their silence.

Law enforcement sources told the New York Post the Mayor wants his security team, that consists of at least 15 cops, to go with him because they’ve been with him so long and know him personally.

The sources say he’s giving them the jobs to keep their mouths shut.

The cops will receive a pretty penny. The reports say the cops could be pocketing cushy pensions and new six figure salaries to continue serving the outgoing Mayor.
