NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department is welcoming 1,123 new officers — and for three of them the job is all in the family.
Brothers Alec, John and Stephen Favale (fah-VAHL’-ee) were among Tuesday’s graduates. And cheering them on was their dad, Deputy Inspector Anthony Favale.
Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) saluted all the cadets for joining the nation’s biggest police department. He added special thanks to the Favales for their “family tradition” of service.
Alec and John are 22-year-old twins. Stephen is 24.
