Early this morning, these @NYPD47Pct police officers responded to a call for a woman in labor. They soon found themselves helping deliver a healthy baby girl at home, & transporting mom & NYC’s newest child to the hospital. Outstanding job by our cops, & congratulations to mom!
Hundreds of new officers forewent their graduation ceremony this week (we’ll make it up to them!) to begin the critical work of protecting NYers during these trying times. I welcome them to the NYPD & say thank you. We, and all the people we serve, need you and truly value you.
Today, the NYPD mourns as we’ve lost a fellow officer to death by suicide. Our thoughts & prayers are with their family & friends. You are never alone, help is always available. Law enforcement text BLUE to 741741 (others text TALK)— to be connected to someone who can help 24/7.

Today, & every day, thousands of NYPD officers leave their families, come to work, & put on a uniform —never knowing what that day may hold. From helping someone cross the street to confronting armed criminals, they are out there protecting us. To each of them, I say: Thank you.
The men & women of the NYPD are out in force to keep people safe in every NYC neighborhood. From cops at schools for lunch pick-ups, to cleaning crews sanitizing our work spaces, they all remain committed. Read my message to the members of the NYPD➡️
Today we lost one of our own: City Custodial Assistant Dennis Dickson, who faithfully served with the NYPD since 2006, has passed away from complications related to the coronavirus. Our deepest sympathies & all of our prayers go out to Dennis’ colleagues & family. #NeverForget
In the last 48 hours, we’ve lost 3 members of the NYPD family. Today we are all mourning and hurting together, as a family. When we emerge from this crisis, let us #NeverForget the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
