Benefit Show in Rememberence of Det. Brian Mulkeen
Heroic police officer Brian Mulkeen, 33, died in the early hours of 29th September 2019 in the line of duty while investigating gang activity as a member of The Bronx Anti-Crime Unit. He saved the lives of other members of his unit by alerting them early and wrestling a criminal to the ground, displaying the incredible courage, bravery, care, and commitment that was natural for Brian, a "born leader" and "a man for others". Mulkeen served in the NYPD for nearly seven years and dedicated his life every day to making the streets of New York City safer. He was well-known throughout NYPD and his community for his supreme dedication and commitment to the force. He was the recipient of at least five Excellence in Police Duties awards and served as an inspiration to his team to achieve more on behalf of others. In his time with the NYPD, he made more than 260 arrests – more than half of them for felonies - and pulled 40 guns off the streets. Brian was incredibly devoted to his community and his family including Sherry, and was well-known for the respect he exhibited toward others, intelligence, love for children and music, and incredible sense of humor. His family paid tribute to him: "Brian was simply a remarkable human being – the best person in the world to have in your life. He was a natural leader because of his genuine and honest nature and brought a sense of protection and comfort to any situation. He was so compassionate, devoted, and was always there for anyone in their time of need. Brian always had a strong and commanding presence and dedicated his life to making the world around him better. We couldn't be prouder, and hope he continues to serve as an inspiration to others. He will never be forgotten and was loved by everyone. He is a true hero." On Friday, Jan 10th we hope you will join us for a night out remembering Brian and honoring his legacy.
