The relationship between some communities and the police, who serve and protect them, has been tumultuous. In the midst of the debate over policing, what is not up for debate are the risks our men and woman in Blue face every day.
There is no more heartbreaking proof than the tragic death of Police Officer Brian Moore, an officer at the 105th Precinct.
There are more than 34,000 officers in the NYPD. The vast majority of them are good people, Folks who work hard to keep the citizens of this city safe from people like Moore’s alleged killer Demetrius Blackwell. Moore and his fellow officers, are there to serve the people of New York. It was gratifying to see the community come together and show support for the officers who put themselves in the line of fire each and every day. We hope everyone will take this as an opportunity to say thanks when we see our Police and realize, they are between us and evil lurking on our streets.
We mourn the loss of Brian Moore and send our condolences to his family and to the family in Blue!
