The men and women that tirelessly work the 5 Burroughs which make up New York City are a brave family group like no other. For our NYPD families, I’m being led to put this on the website For every one sold $5 will be donated to the NYCPBA Widows and Children’s Fund. God bless!
The green stripes are symbolic of the first NYPD who were called Watchmen. They used to carry a green lantern during colonial times since they had no official uniforms yet. Green lanterns still hang outside the precincts just as the Watchmen would do so passers by would know they were on duty and ready to serve.
