NEW YORK - Police have identified two officers who they say altered Wikipedia pages using department equipment. 

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton says he doesn't expect to penalize the cops, but will instead remind them of the city's policies. 

It comes after a report last week said that Wikipedia edits were made to change details about police brutality and shooting incidents. 

The cases include Eric Garner, Sean Bell and Amadou Diallo.
