Recipients of the NYPD’s Theodore Roosevelt Award are some of the toughest, most resilient people anywhere. Despite serious illnesses or injuries that would have overwhelmed most people, they battled back to full duty. Tonight we honor them again with our newly-created medals.

Approx. 11 min. after taking off from E. 34 St. heliport, a privately-owned helicopter crashed atop 787 7th Ave. in Midtown. 1 confirmed fatality, a man we believe is the pilot. Working with our federal partners to learn more about flight path, pilot, etc.

Great job by members of our NYPD family, who took part in National Brain Tumor Society’s 9th-annual . They did so in memory of Lt. Agy Peña, who passed Nov. 3, 2018, following her 6-year fight against brain cancer. Today’s a day to celebrate life, love, & hope.

It’s imperative that cops — NYPD & every PD — discuss mental health. We can’t sit idly by & just pray suicides don’t happen again. To save lives, we must take action now. Seeking help is never a sign of weakness. In fact, it’s a sign of great strength. ⬇️

It would be irresponsible of me to go through & not speak of Stonewall in June 1969. What happened should not have happened. The actions taken by the NYPD were wrong, plain & simple. The actions & the laws were discriminatory & oppressive &, for that, I apologize.

Deputy Chief Steven Silks truly was one of the most capable & most dependable cops this profession has ever seen. His entire 39-year NYPD career — much of his adult life, in fact — was devoted to NYC, its police officers, & to fighting crime & protecting all the people we serve.

NYPD cops continue to prove they’re the best at what they do. Lives depend on how they do their jobs – their lives, the lives of their fellow officers, & the lives of the people they’ve sworn to protect. This is New York policing. Congrats to all of our 2019 Medal Day honorees.

30 years ago, just halfway through 1989, PO Jeff Herman was the 4th of 9 NYC police officers - including 2 auxiliaries - who would be killed that year. Another 8 cops had already been shot & survived. We vow to the courage, sacrifice & service of all our NYPD heroes.

Before 9/11-related illness claimed him, Chief William Allee’s 40 years as an NYPD cop saw him lead the meticulous collection of WTC evidence — ensuring objects of great significance were preserved for family members. We will his courage, selflessness, & compassion.

NYPD cops are fully invested in the areas of NYC they patrol. They take our profession — & NYers’ safety & quality of life — personally. That’s the key to making the safest big city in our nation even safer. Congrats & thank you to Det. Washington. More:⬇️

Another fruitful session, where NYPD discussed the many challenges threatening to undo the historic public-safety gains NYC’s achieved. Also, thrilled that Det. Fred Washington was honored w/ FBI NEIA ethics award for his Neighborhood Policing efforts.
