Confronting these challenges, the NYPD remains steadfast in its mission to reduce crime and fight the rising toll of gun violence on the streets of New York City. Keeping New Yorkers safe is the work each New York City police officer signed up to do – despite the all too evident risks – and it is the work the Department asks of them. The shared mission of safety and justice is propelling the NYPD to expand its innovative gun violence suppression strategies, which are anchored by long-tern, intelligence-driven investigations. This work, exemplified through the Gun Violence Strategies Partnership, shines light on the collective effort to utilize all resources to stop the trigger pullers. The NYPD’s leaders are working around the clock, in tandem with their federal and state law enforcement partners, and with the city’s five district attorneys, to devise comprehensive crime fighting measures, build solid criminal cases, and achieve meaningful consequences for crimes that tear at the fabric of the city.

“The NYPD will forever work to ensure public safety and will never give up this city,” said Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell. “This is our solemn vow to New Yorkers and to New York City. It remains critical that all partners come to the table in this shared mission to combat gun violence. It is the purpose-driven work that allows NYPD officers to honor the lives of their two recently murdered colleagues, First Grade Detectives Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora. We will never forget the light they shined for us and we will never relinquish our privileged duty as society’s guardian.”
