NYPD Graduation Ceremony

Location: Manhattan, NY
December 28, 2010

While most of Manhattan hid indoors Monday December 27 2010, the NYPD’s 1,147 newest police officers braved the snow to attend their graduation ceremony at Madison Square Garden. The rookie cops will get their first assignment in just four days, when each of them will be deployed around Times Square for New Year’s Eve festivities. Police Commissioner Kelly and Mayor Michael Bloomberg praised the diversity of the new class, which includes military veterans, professionals in law and medicine, natives of 53 countries and speakers of 48 languages. “Whatever your background may be, whatever path you walked to this day, you all now share the same solemn mission,” Bloomberg said. “By making our city safer, you’re giving New Yorkers a better future.”
