A disgraced former NYPD cop, forced to quit after fatally shooting an elderly schizophrenic woman in The Bronx, has found a new job working for one of the city’s police unions, The Post has learned

Hugh Barry, who was tried and acquitted for murder and manslaughter for the 2016 killing of 66-year-old Deborah Danner, is described on the website for the Sergeants Benevolent Association of the NYPD as a reimbursement coordinator.

Barry was forced to resign in 2023 following an internal review of the fatal incident, which found he “exercised poor tactical judgment.”

His actions on the job cost the city $2 million, after it settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Danner’s twin sister, Jennifer, who declined to comment.

It was unclear what Barry’s new job entails, or when he started working for the SBA, which did not respond to The Post’s numerous requests for comment.

Barry did not return calls.

In October 2016, Barry was dispatched to Danner’s Castle Hill apartment after 911 received calls the mentally-ill woman had been acting erratically.

Danner, a writer who shared her experiences with mental illness, was shot to death after she picked up a baseball bat.

Barry, an NYPD sergeant at the time, argued he fired in self-defense.

In 2017, Barry was arrested for shooting Danner, becoming the first on-duty cop to face a murder rap since 1999.

A judge acquitted the eight-year NYPD veteran in 2018.
