FAIRFIELD, NJ — A contingent of Fairfield Police Department supervisors and detectives recently attended a leadership day with the New York City Police Department (NYPD)—a department viewed as one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the world—in order to get perspective as to the NYPD’s training and capabilities.

Attending the event were Fairfield Police Chief Anthony Manna, Lt. Charles Zampino, Lt. Daniel Dias, Sgt. Paul Bowden, Sgt. John McNish, Sgt. Christopher Niemiec, Sgt. Frank Tracey, Sgt. Michael Nyhuis, Sgt. John McGrory and Detective Jeffrey Didyk.

“Our gratitude goes out to the NYPD for their hospitality and for taking the time to educate us on how they go about keeping America’s largest city safe. I feel it was a great learning and team building experience for our officers” said Manna. “The day would have been even better had the Yankees won."

The trip began with a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, where the officers could reflect on that tragic day and get perspective regarding the sacrifices made by so many Americans, including first responders. Upon completing the museum tour, the group boarded a 70-foot NYPD boat for a tour around the city on both the Hudson and East Rivers.
Along the way, the group learned about the many responsibilities and the capabilities of the Harbor Unit.

It was then off to the police academy in College Point, Queens to see how NYPD’s Finest are trained, from initial recruit training to in-service classes for veterans and supervisors. The trip culminated with a teambuilding event where the officers attended a New York Yankees baseball game.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
