Rockland’s Samuel Winsbacher Valedictorian at NYPD Graduation
25 year old Samuel Winsbacher from Monsey won two of the eight awards given out at the graduation, which was held in Madison Square Garden. With an overall average of 99.59 percent, the highest in the class of more than 500 students, Winsbacher was honored with the academy’s top award, the Mayor’s Award, in addition to earning the First Deputy Commissioner’s Award with an academic average of 99.3 percent.
Winsbacher spoke about the six month long journey that he and his classmates shared at the academy.
“It is important that we stay true to ourselves and, above all else, continue to demonstrate the integrity and professionalism that embodies this great department,” said Winsbacher. “We must remember that today is not merely an endpoint, but a stepping stone towards a lifelong commitment to protect and serve.
Despite living in Rockland County, Winsbacher had his sights set on the NYPD and not the police force in his relatively quiet hometown.
We wish Officer Winsbacher a long and safe career!
