Lucky for Finest Football, @fdny was at Friday's football game because we were ON FIYAH! 🔥 Final score of the NPSFL National Championship was #NYPD - 23 #FDNY - 0 Good game to both teams!
When Nael stopped breathing, lifeless in her mother’s arms, her mother immediately knew who to call. Pictured below are her father, a now smiling Nael, and Police Officer Torres from the 23rd Precinct. He received the call and immediately sprang into action acting quickly, focused & prepared, taking her in his arms, performing CPR, saving her life, and keeping her family intact as a result. Our city’s heroes in blue are trained to be just that, and never fail to rise to the occasion.
The NYPD 72nd Precinct has expanded their ride-along program! When officers found this lost good boy, he fit right into the team, giving them a hand as they patrolled the streets of Brooklyn. Notice his tactical “rub my belly” posture.
In May, a man was robbed and thrown down the subway stairs by four assailants. Neighborhood Coordination Officers Rivera, Pagan, and the 23 Precinct Anti-Crime team never let the trail go cold! They tracked down all four suspects over the ensuing weeks, closing the case and making NYC a little safer.
Neighborhood Coordination Officers partnered up with Detectives in the 2-3 Squad following a shots fired job in the Jefferson Houses. After a thorough investigation, Detective Cortes and her team successfully carried out a search warrant and recovered this illegally possessed firearm.
NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa Christian! 🦇🙋🏽♂️ A suspect fleeing from our Highway officers was stopped by Good Samaritan/Local Superhero, Christian...who happened to be sporting a Batman shirt. Unfortunately, he broke his leg in the process. Our thankful #NYPD officers made sure to visit Christian and wish him a speedy recovery! P.S. We’re hiring!
Liked “Our officers have a strong message for bad guys in NYC- Violence has no place here! Officers from Our 6-7 precinct have been hard at work this month, taking these guns off the streets of Brooklyn and making NYC just a little bit safer. “We won’t rest until every block in every neighborhood enjoys the same level of safety and well-being as the rest of the city. Your zip code must never be the primary determiner of your safety. And it’s our pledge to ensure that your neighborhood is safe, regardless of where in New York City you call home.” - Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill ”
Happy birthday to Old Glory—she doesn’t look a day over 242 years old! 🇺🇸 We stand tall with her and all those who defend her! #FlagDay
Some things never change! Last week, the 81 Precinct had a very special visit from retired-Patrolman Gehring. From 1962 to 1964, he walked the streets of Bed-Stuy as an #NYPD cop before working at different precincts throughout NYC. 55 years later, and he hasn’t aged a bit. Join us as we wish him well on his continued retirement! #ThrowbackThursday #TBT
NYC, meet your new (and much younger) #NYPD bosses! Today, we hosted some young bosses for Police Commissioner for a Day. Numerous high school students were hand selected for essays they wrote and were sworn in as executive staff members at Police Headquarters.
On Tuesday night at 9:30, Midtown North officers responded to a 911 call about a wounded child at West 56th Street in Manhattan. At the apartment, Sergeant Morris, Officer Casillo, Officer McCormick and Officer Albano were met by a distraught mother directing them to the bathroom. The officers immediately assessed the situation and determined that the woman’s 2-year-old daughter was seriously injured by a glass shower door that had shattered on top of her. While Officer McCormick and Sergeant Morris carefully lifted the child from the tub, Officer Casillo prepared his QuikClot kit in hopes of stopping her blood loss. Sergeant Morris then applied the QuikClot to the girl’s wound and put pressure on the laceration. Understanding the importance of getting her to the hospital as quickly as possible, these #NYPD officers escorted Emergency Medical Services to Mount Sinai West. The officers stopped by the hospital to see her and are happy to report that she's now recovering at home!
75 years ago, young men went off to storm the beaches of Normandy, facing evil square in the face and coming out on top, forever changing the course of history. Today, members of the #NYPD Emerald Society Pipes and Drums were on hand to honor those who gave their lives so we could live ours. #dday
35 years after joining the #NYPD, Sergeant Connolly spent his last day in the department visiting two very special cops—his son and daughter. He even went out on patrol with his son, Officer Connolly, in the precinct where he first walked the streets as an NYC cop. We think it’s safe to say he’s leaving New Yorkers in good hands! Thank you for over three and a half decades of service. #Family
"Today, we honor those who gave their lives for the people of this city, and we also recognize those whose remarkable bravery, instincts, and skill carried them through situations that would have panicked most other people," said Commissioner O’Neill as we acknowledged 88 #NYPD members during the 2019 Medal Day ceremony. The annual Medal Day ceremony honors both uniformed and civilian members of the NYPD of all ranks who have performed significant acts of heroism, some of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice by laying down their lives to uphold their sworn oath as law enforcement officers.
Finders Keepers: Our officers frequently rescue animals, and often adopt them too! That's what happened when #NYPD cops in Queens were called about 4 kittens stranded in a basement window well. Officers MacDowell & Wong each adopted a kitten and brought the rest of them to @nycacc.
While most New Yorkers were sleeping, Officer Giordano and his fellow 103 Precinct cops were hard at work keeping Queens safe. While responding to a domestic violence call, they made an arrest and followed up with a search warrant. The officers safely covered 12 guns, 3 suppressors, and ammunition.
Today, the 9/11 Memorial Glade was dedicated. It honors the ongoing sacrifices of rescue, recovery and relief workers. The Glade’s design includes a pathway flanked by six large stone monoliths that are inlaid with World Trade Center steel accompanied by an inscription at either end of the pathway. It is located just west of the Survivor Tree, roughly where the primary ramp that was used during the rescue and recovery effort once stood. As the tragic numbers of those dying due to 9/11 illnesses increases, we continue our vow to #neverforget
When a person alerted our Manhattan North Bike Unit about an injured bird in Central Park, they knew exactly what to do. The officers safely wrapped the little robin in a shirt and brought it to the @wildbirdfund for rehabilitation! 🐥🚴🏼♂️
This Mounted Unit horse and the brave members of the armed forces have something in common—they‘re both heroes. Our military members earned that distinction defending our country. Our horse, Hero, was named by the family of fallen #NYPD Detective Dennis Guerra to honor his legacy. As our military ships once again set sail, Hero and his partner saw them off. It was an honor to host you in our city. We are eternally grateful for your service to our nation.
Today the #NYPD honors all those who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our freedoms and this country. #NEVERFORGET #AMERICA
Make way for ducklings! 🚓🦆 🐥 🐥 These fuzzy little New Yorkers required police assistance after they fell into a sewer in Staten Island yesterday. Our 123 precinct cops enlisted our elite Emergency Service Unit & together they returned 8 tiny ones to their mama in a nearby pond.
Ahoy sailors! Our counterterrorism officers (in Tactical Blues) caught up with some friends from the US Navy (in Crisp Whites) on board the Intrepid earlier today. #fleetweek
We’re #fleetweek ready! We’re happy to be out there protecting those who protect us.
Relentless follow up on solid information gathered by Field Intelligence Officers and Special Operations officers from the 47 Precinct led to the arrest of an individual in possession of these 27 firearms, multiple fake law enforcement badges, and other dangerous weapons. #NYPD
This morning, our #NYPD Harbor Unit escorted the USS New York into the city during the Parade of Ships. This @usnavy vessel is very special to New Yorkers because it was partially constructed using steel gathered from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. We thank all military members for their service and look forward to showing you around town. #FleetWeekNYC
Another day, another life saved! When a construction worker fell off a ladder and suffered a deep laceration to his arm, Officers Washack and Cobaj knew exactly what to do. These 1 Precinct cops applied a tourniquet to prevent severe blood loss, likely saving the man’s life.
This week, our NYPD officers joined thousands of officers from around the world in Washington DC for Police Week, honoring those who serve and those we lost in the line of duty. #policeweek #nationalpoliceweek
When a helicopter fell into the Hudson River yesterday, a passenger ferry safely removed the pilot to land. Our Scuba and Harbor officers were on scene and assisted in the recovery. The aircraft was then lifted from the river by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and taken by the National Transportation Safety Board for further investigation.
Join us today in remembrance of our #NYPD fallen officers, and all of our nation’s protectors, who have lost their lives in the line of duty defending the citizens they swore to protect. 🖤💙🖤#PeaceOfficersMemorialDay #NationalPoliceWeek
#NYPD Neighborhood Coordination officers from the 48 Precinct played a game of soccer against students from MS 45 in the Bronx recently, and although they couldn't, "Bend it like Beckham," they had fun spending time with the kids anyway.
Last year, 163 law enforcement heroes laid down their lives while protecting their communities. Every year during Police Memorial Week, we gather to commemorate the fallen and continue our vow to #NeverForget them. Thank you to the @empirestatebldg for recognizing their sacrifice and lighting up the NYC skyline blue & purple this weekend in their honor.
When an elderly woman was hospitalized after taking a fall, she told a nurse that her cat was unattended at home. The nurse then called the 112 Precinct Community Affairs officers to see if they could help. Our cops went to the house, fed Annabelle and will be caring for the kitty until her owner returns!
"We know that no plaque, no memorial, no ceremony will ever fill the void left by these brave men and women, and that's not why we come back. We come back to make sure that we, the survivors and the future generations, never forget." -Police Commissioner O'Neill This morning we added 47 names to our Hall of Heroes at #NYPD headquarters during our Police Memorial Day ceremony. We continue our vow to #NeverForget each one of them.
When a call for a suicidal female came over the radio, #NYPD Lieutenant Caesar from Police Service Area 8 in the #Bronx sprang into action. He found her on the roof, & was able to grab her before she could harm herself. With the aid of Officers Callejas & Verdesoto, they were able to get her the help she needed.
While you’re out enjoying this beautiful weather just remember that the hardworking members of the #NYPD are always protecting the public. We have you covered from the sky to the waters and everything in between. #viewoftheday
Fun Fact: Officers that want to join the elite #NYPD Mounted Unit must first train on ponies. OK, that’s not true, but don’t tell that to Officer Hill-Cecil from the 23rd Precinct in #Harlem who went for a short ride while patrolling a local street fair.
Protecting New Yorkers 24/7, 365. Field Intelligence officers from the 47 Precinct conducted a successful search warrant and safely recovered these firearms, keeping them off the streets of the Bronx.
“I’m proud of Riley – he gave me the opportunity to get to the shooter. If he didn’t do what he did, I don’t know where it would go.” - UNC Sergeant Rich Gundacker. When a shooter opened fire in a classroom at UNC Charlotte, 21-year-old Riley Howell bravely tackled the gunman. Tragically, Riley was shot and killed while protecting his fellow classmates. Riley’s heroic actions allowed UNC Sergeant Rich Gundacker, a retired #NYPD Emergency Service Unit detective, to arrive and disarm the shooter. While Sergeant Gundacker apprehended the shooter, other law enforcement officers secured the building. We mourn the tragic loss of two students and pray for a speedy recovery for those injured.
The force is strong with this group! Auxiliary officers from the #NYPD 19th Precinct looked like a group ready for a lightsaber fight, but instead used their traffic wands to help pedestrians cross the street on the upper east side. #maythe4thbewithyou
Saving a life is all in a day’s work for these Brooklyn cops! When Officers Vanweele and Lagrutta from the 72 Precinct responded to a call of an unconscious and unresponsive woman, they knew exactly what to do. These well-equipped officers used Narcan to revive the overdose victim and transported her to the hospital to receive further care.
Meet Detective Cross🕵🏽♂️: He wasn’t going to let a sexual predator get away with illegally photographing a young girl on the subway. He arrested the bad guy, who was later linked to a decade-old open sexual assault case. Our Transit officers are out there every day, helping ensure you get where you’re going safely.
157.2 miles, 6 marathons, and 4 different countries — How’s that for some #MondayMotivation? Yesterday, Deputy Inspector Ernest Morales became the first NYPD Officer to complete the World Marathon Majors, after finishing the #LondonMarathon in an impressive 4:20:26.
There are no days off for members of the NYPD. Excellent work by our PSA 1 Field Intelligence Officers who conducted a search warrant and arrested an individual getting these illegal guns, ammunition, and drugs off the streets of Brooklyn.
Rain or shine, our officers are out there protecting all residents and visitors to NYC. These @nypdct World Trade Center cops don’t mind a little rain when they know they’re protecting one of the most important landmarks in the greatest city in the world. #NYPD
Earlier this week, Detective Otero and members of the NYPD Emergency Service Unit received a 911 call stating a man was suicidal and threatening to jump from a Bronx fire escape. When the officers arrived, they immediately started to engage with the person to gain his trust. “I was able to connect with the man—we were able to hold a conversation while my partners deployed the airbags. I know the Longwood area of the Bronx very well so we spoke about the area for some time,” said Detective Otero. Detective Otero is also the lead instructor in the one month training course “Emotionally Disturbed Persons Verbal and Tactics” for ESU Cadets. After nearly 6 hours of conversation, the man became erratic and attempted to throw himself when Detective Otero and his partners grabbed him and safely removed him, preventing him from harming himself. “It is very rewarding to know that we were able to help someone in need,” Detective Otero said.
Sexual assault is NEVER the victim’s fault. This #DenimDay, NYPD Personnel across New York City would like to remind you that we will relentlessly investigate and take action against those that commit such crimes. If you ever need assistance, please call 911 or the NYPD Special Victims Division’s 24-hour hotline at (212)-267-7273. Denim Day was created in response to a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction. The court found that the victim implied consent because she was wearing tight jeans during the sexual assault and therefore would have had to help the attacker remove her jeans. The following day, women in the Italian Parliament wore jeans in solidarity with the victim. Denim Day has been observed for the past 20 years as a way to bring awareness to sexual violence.
Pizza delivery man to the rescue - does it get more New York than that? Last month, Sgt. William Rivera and his Neighborhood Coordination Officers of the 20th Precinct were out on the Upper West Side of Manhattan looking for a guy wanted for robbing a woman of her AirPods. The team spotted the suspect, who immediately ran off (throwing fake $50 bills along his path…) Enter Alou Bathelu. Domino's Pizza guy, bike delivery man, and now, honorary local neighborhood superhero. Alou saw the chase and yelled his new catchphrase “I’ll stop him, officers!” He pulled his bike ahead of the fleeing bad guy and stalled him just long enough for our officers to catch up. It turns out the robber also had seven prior arrests including robbery and grand larceny. Yesterday, Alou Received an award for his effort from Police Commissioner O’Neill and 20th precinct Commanding Officer, DI Malin who – believe it or not – used to work for Domino's Pizza as a pizza guy himself! And yes, he saved the day twice. Stopping the robber, and still managing to deliver the pie in 30 minutes or less.
BEEfore 🐝 #EarthDay ends, we’d love to remind you that the NYPD has been doing its part to help save New York City’s bee population since 1995. Our beekeepers are on call covering all five boroughs, 24/7, 365 with the mission to safely relocate bee swarms. You can also follow their pretty sweet Twitter feed - twitter.com/NYPDBees
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the bombings in Sri Lanka. At this time, there is no known nexus to #NYC. Since last week, additional deployments were placed at various religious institutions throughout the city to ensure a safe holiday weekend for all. We ask that you should always remain vigilant & report any suspicious activity. If you see something, say something (888) NYC-SAFE #easter #srilanka
At 4:30pm today, officers from the 34th Precinct received a 911 call for “shots fired” in Washington Heights. At the location, they approached a man who matched description. The man then ran with a gun in his hand, and an officer pursued him on foot into a parking garage. There, the suspect fires 3 rounds at the police officer, striking him in the right arm. The wounded officer fires back once. At the same time, the officer’s partner drives his unmarked police car into the parking lot and exits the vehicle. One bullet fired by the suspect goes past the officer and through the windshield of the police car. The officer then fires 3 rounds at the perpetrator, striking him in the chest. He was transported to Columbia-Presbyterian - where he was pronounced deceased at 5:10 p.m. Our wounded officer was brought to Mount Sinai-St. Luke's, where he is being treated and is currently in stable condition.
