NYPD Soccer & Cricket

In 2008, the NYPD developed the soccer and cricket leagues in an effort to establish lines of communication and generate understanding with the participants, their friends, families and the entire community. Equally important, the interaction has provided an important learning experience for the members of the NYPD as well.

The competitions have received overwhelming responses, with participation increasing every year. Both programs have attracted substantial media coverage including local press, national (NBC Nightly News) and internationally, including BBC and the Sydney Morning Herald.
