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.
Neighborhood Policing opens a dialogue between police officers and the communities they serve. Working in the same neighborhoods day after day gives these officers a deep knowledge of the streets and the people who live and work there. Most importantly, it gives them the ability to work with you to develop proactive solutions to the problems in your neighborhood. Do you know who your Neighborhood Coordination Officers are?

When little Mahdi was discharged from the hospital following a heart transplant, he was greeted by a standing ovation from his father’s NYPD family in blue. In a social media post, Officer Saidul Islam’s wife expressed her gratitude to all those who have helped her family through this difficult time: “I want to thank you all for your prayers and support for Mahdi. I want to thank my husband’s job, the #NYPD Transportation Bureau, for helping us throughout the entire process, mentally and financially, as well as donating vacation days to be with my son.” Feel better, Mahdi! Your family in blue is rooting for you.
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the New York City Police Department Flag. The New York City Police Department flag represents a century of pride, valor, and sacrifice. The flag is modeled after the United States flag: the five white and green bars represent the boroughs of New York, while the 24 stars represent the cities, towns, and villages incorporated into the City of New York in 1898. The color green celebrates the history of New York law enforcement and can be traced back to 1658, when the New Amsterdam night watchmen—the city’s first paid police force—carried lanterns with green glass. Wherever and whenever it is displayed, we honor the rich history of our department with pride. Join us in celebrating.
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.
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.
