Lt. Joseph Giuseppie Petrosino honored at NYC Police Museum Suzannah given an NYPD pin with his badge no! Please come visit this gem of a museum and moving exhibition honoring Lt. Giuseppe Joseph Petrosino a true American NYPD hero who was the first NYPD hero to lose his life in the line of duty. After visiting the historic building that was once an active precinct you can walk across to the other side of Lower Manhattan and visit the NYPD Memorial where you can see his name honored with so many courageous souls that have lost their lives in the line of duty.

My theory is if he had lived he would have been our first Italian American NYPD Commish!
