State of the NYPD

State of the NYPD

Hundreds of New Yorkers gathered together on January 31, including The Honorable Eric Adams, Mayor of the City of New York, to hear from Police Commissioner Edward Caban at the annual “State of the NYPD” address hosted by the New York City Police Foundation at Cipriani 42nd street.

“The support of the New York City Police Foundation is essential to the success of the NYPD and to the public safety of everyone in New York City. The Foundation’s work — from investing in our officers’ well-being, to providing resources that allow us to drive innovation through new technologies, to enriching our youth and community-engagement programs — makes a real difference in our city. And our partnership is invaluable. Working together in 2024, we will ALL make New York City better tomorrow than it is today.”

–Police Commissioner Edward A. Caban

In addition to Commissioner Caban, guests heard from First Deputy Commissioner Tania Kinsella, Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey, Deputy Commissioner Intelligence & Counterterrorism Rebecca Weiner, Deputy Commissioner Public Information Tarik Sheppard, and Chief of Transit Michael Kemper, who each delivered informative remarks on the comprehensive strategies the Department is taking to keep our city safe.

Several new initiatives were announced, including the creation two new posts for the NYPD’s International/Domestic Liaison Program – fully funded by the New York City Police Foundation- in Tucson, Arizona and Bogota, Colombia, which will address the myriad of issues that are coming across our Southern border and which will enable the NYPD to build greater relationships and gather intelligence that will be vital to protecting New York City.

With the support of the Police Foundation, it was also announced that the NYPD’s Options Program will continue its growth through the build out of additional new space and programming at the NYPD’s Bronx Wellness Center on Arthur Avenue – providing a dedicated space where young New Yorkers will be given opportunities to learn about the trades through hands-on experiences in construction, electrical work, painting, sheet rocking and more.

“At a time when the vital work of our city’s law enforcement is too often scrutinized and dissected, I’m especially proud that the Police Foundation remains unwavering in our support and commitment to build bridges between law enforcement and the community – and to make New York City a safer, better place to live, work, and to visit.”
