Awww how sweet! Congrats to the lovebirds:)
An NYPD cop showed himself to be a real Prince Charming on Broadway Monday night.
After the cast of the musical “Cinderella” took their bows, NYPD sergeant Alan Chau, 30, took the stage with his girlfriend of almost five years, Maria Roca, 28.
As friends of the Queens lovebirds held up signs that asked, “Maria, will you marry me?” Chau dropped to one knee and popped the question.
“I’m here because I love you,” the romantic cop said in the fairy tale moment, presenting his bride-to-be with a shiny engagement ring.
The U.S. national media just got the perfect holiday gift: a feel-good tale about a young police officer who dug into his own pocket to put boots on a barefoot panhandler on a freezing city sidewalk.
Even better was the way the story ofNew York City Police Officer Larry DePrimo’s kindness unfolded.
An NYPD whistleblower says he’s been transferred to the graveyard shift at Bronx Central Booking in retaliation for raising red flags about crime reports at his old Queens precinct.
Sgt. Robert Borrelli told internal investigators that cops in the 100th Precinct in the Rockaways routinely downgraded crimes to keep the crime rate artificially low — and turned over the shady paperwork as proof.
In 2010, Bennett Hinds saw flashing police lights coming from behind his red Honda on W. 97th St.
“Suddenly I had three 9-mm. handguns pointed at me,” he tells me. “Three plainclothes cops, including a female, were screaming at me to ‘Get out of the f—— car.’ They searched my whole car, screaming, ‘Where’s the f—— drugs?’”
Only after they handcuffed him did they learn that Hinds was a retired police officer, once a member of an elite all-minority NYPD unit called The PEP Squad.
A New York policeman has saved his own life by jamming his ring finger between the hammer and cylinder of a gun when a suspect tried to shoot him in the stomach during a struggle.
Sergeant Michael Miller and his partner were arresting passengers in a speeding car when Eugene Graves pulled a gun on him, the New York Daily News reports.
The terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York City has raised the question: How much freedom should we trade to achieve security? There will be many economists, social scientists, and business groups who will attempt to extrapolate the monetary, business, and social costs to our society in any reduction of our personal freedom. Before we begin to assess those costs I would like to share with you an essay on bravery and personal loss that cannot be so easily calculated, yet must be.
9/11 forever changed how the NYPD views its mission and the world around us. As soon as the Bloomberg administration took office, we quickly reorganized our operations to address the threat of terrorism. We could not defer this responsibility to others.
We immediately increased the number of detectives assigned to the Joint Terrorist Task Force with the FBI. On 9/11 just 17 detectives served on the city’s JTTF. We increased that number to more than 120. Since then, the JTTF has functioned as our chief conduit for receiving intelligence developed overseas about terrorist plots related to New York.
Are we really proud of the George Daw precedent?
The New York state bus driver was fired Monday because he “endangered welfare of students he was transporting when he picked up three unauthorized passengers,” according to the Educational Bus Company on Long Island. But as transgressive as that statement makes Daw’s actions sound, what in fact happened was what would commonly be described as either an act of heroism or at the least a Good Samaritan in action. What Daw did was rescue three police officers who were stranded in a hailstorm on Aug. 1.
For the fist time in the annals of the 166-year-old police force, two black women are the top cops in command of a city precinct.
“When I got the call, I was really quite surprised to learn I was making history. I was just looking for someone to do the job,” Holmes said of Kight’s appointment. “I’m very grateful to have her.”
