“When an officer takes the Oath of Office, they swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the State of New York. The Oath is the cornerstone of law enforcement’s commitment to the public and the reason for my deeply held belief that a Constitutional Policing model is the most fundamentally sound method of ensuring that our focus is on treating all members of our community fairly and impartially.” - Chief Prusak
