Even Brooklyn’s Bravest need a little help, and that’s where the Auxiliary Police squad comes in. These “eyes and ears” of the NYPD are dedicated, hard working, and caring volunteers who put themselves on the front lines.
Capt. John Chell, commanding officer of the 61st Precinct, presented his auxiliary squad members with plaques of appreciation at a gala event at the Bainbridge Center on Ocean Avenue on March 13 for going above and beyond duty — and expectations — during Hurricane Sandy.
Standing O joins the captain in saying, “Thank you for helping to keep our streets safe.”
