The annual “Police Commissioner for a Day” essay contest, open to high school students throughout the city, asks students to write about how they would solve an existing crime/community problem, if they were the Police Commissioner. The contest gives students a chance to research a problem they may currently experience, and express themselves and their solutions to local police officials.
Bishop Kearney is pleased to announce that five of our students were selected as award recipients. In addition to interacting with fellow PC for A Day winners in other categories, the students will meet the Police Commissioner, James P. O’Neill, PAL’s Executive Director, Franc J. Watts, and other dignitaries from the NYPD and PAL.
