Police Week

Thank you NYPD. MEA would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to the hardworking members of the NYPD, New York’s Finest, in honor of National Police Week (May 12-18). Since its founding in 1962, following President Kennedy’s signing of a proclamation declaring May 15th Peace Officers Memorial Day, National Police Week has served as an opportunity to honor those who made the sacrifice to serve their fellow citizens.

The NYPD works hard to keep New Yorkers safe across the five boroughs, addressing issues ranging from traffic incidents to emergency response to counterterrorism. As the largest municipal police force in the country, they serve as an example to cities across the nation in their work protecting the denizens of the Greatest City in the World. 

NYPD offers a variety of community programs, including the Citizens Police Academy and the Ride Along Program, to strengthen the relationship with the public and to foster a better understanding of the work that goes in to maintaining public safety in the city.

We are proud to represent the deserving managerial employees of our NYPD Chapter. We’d like to send a special shoutout to our MEA NYPD chapter representative: Kenneth Clark who serves on our Executive Board to help make the MEA stronger.

If you are interested in running for one of the leadership positions – Chapter Director, Assistant Chapter Director, and Recording Secretary – be sure to contact the office. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the fight to protect your rights! Spread the word about membership to any of your colleagues who are not members, for we are stronger in numbers.
