State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) recently served as the keynote speaker in a ceremony to honor members of the NYPD’s School Safety Division for their dedication to keeping schools around the borough safe.

Dozens of School Safety agents from the Queens North Division were honored last Tuesday by the Police Department at an awards ceremony at Francis Lewis High School for their service and commitment to protecting public schools around borough. During that ceremony, Addabbo presented Senate citations to a group of School Safety officers to honor their excellence and achievements on the job.

Before presenting his awards, Addabbo thanked the officers for their service and emphasized their significance to not only the NYPD, but to New Yorkers everywhere.

“As the parent of two young daughters who both attend public schools, I understand first-hand just how important the job of a school safety agent really is and what their dedication to their jobs means to millions of families across the city,” Addabbo said. “Because of the bold men and women who serve as school safety agents, parents like myself can send our children to school every day knowing they are in good hands and will be protected from harm. These officers are a pivotal part of the NYPD, the public school system and of families who depend on them each and every day, and I can never thank them enough for their service. I am honored to have been a part of this year’s Queens North Award Ceremony and look forward to seeing even more school safety agents at next year’s event.”
