Medal Recipients: 1st Precinct Police Officer Artr Kasprzak

March 5th, 2013 Posted in 1st Precinct News

kasprzakOfficer Kasprzak was awarded 2 medals for meritorious service for saving a man’s life in July of 2011 by rescuing him from the East River and then again in September of 2012 for apprehending a man with a loaded 32 caliber revolver. His quick thinking and response in both instances helped saved lives and helped make the quality of life better in the City of New York and our downtown community.

On October 28th 2012 Officer Kasprzak again thinking of others, helped to save his family during Super -storm Sandy . With water pouring into his Staten Island home, Kasprzak helped move six adults and his 15-month-old nephew into his home’s attic. He then went back down to the basement to look for his father. Unknown to Kasprzak, his father had already exited the house and was on his way up to the attic via a different path. Kasprzak never returned.

Officer Kasprzak will truly be missed and his heroism will not be forgotten.
