Mayor Noam Bramson with essay winners Alicia Acevedo, Gabrielle Cohen, and Nicholas Picone

I was honored to participate this morning in New Rochelle’s annual Police memorial and award breakfast and especially glad to recognize youngsters Gabrielle Cohen, Alicia Acevedo, and Nicholas Picone, who wrote winning essays describing their appreciation for the NRPD.

Thanks to the dedication and professionalism of New Rochelle’s men and women in blue, our city is among the safest of its size in America. We should never forget the risks that Police officers take every day on our behalf.
