Don't expect to see Officer Eddie Mallia working undercover.
The Queens beat police officer, who bares all in an upcoming issue of Playgirl, could see his job go the way of his clothes after joining ex-Officer Carol Shaya in the slowly growing ranks of NYPD nude.
Police Commissioner William Bratton, who fired Ms. Shaya earlier this month, said Mallia could meet the same fate. Through spokesman Tom Kelly, he said Wednesday that Mallia's case was referred to the department chief of patrol's office "for the appropriate action."
"We imagined it would be controversial," said Laurie Sue Brockway, Playgirl editor-in-chief. "But it's our responsibility, our mission, to bring our women entertainment . . . to keep their fantasies alive."
The issue goes on sale April 6.
