NEW YORK (AP) _ A police officer considered himself a model cop _ so he modeled without his clothes for Playgirl.

Officer Edward ``Fast Eddie'' Mallia bares all in an 11-page spread in the May issue of Playgirl magazine, including the centerfold, The Daily News reported today.

Mallia, 28, is the second New York Police Department officer who decided he didn't want to work undercover. Officer Carol Shaya, 25, posed nude in the August 1994 edition of Playboy magazine, and got so much exposure for her $100,000 fee that Police Commissioner William Bratton fired her earlier this month.

Bratton said Mallia will receive the same treatment.

``If, in fact, the article or pictorial is in violation of our department and procedures ... we will initiate that type of activity (firing) against the officer,'' he said.

Mallia, who works in the 109th Precinct in Queens, received $5,000 for his Playgirl poses, the News reported.

Mallia said he modeled for the magazine for art's sake, and compared himself to Michelangelo.

``I've sculpted my body like he sculpts his pieces,'' he said.
