Answering the Call to Service: Edward A. Caban ’89SVC

The NYPD is headed by the Police Commissioner, whom the Mayor appoints with the function to carry out the department’s critical mission: ensuring a safe, secure environment and enhancing the quality of life for all New Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple.


“Catholic schools like Hayes and St. John’s reinforced the early lessons of my parents, and the NYPD Academy finessed that mission of service to others,” he said. “There is nothing in the world like public service. My father taught me that every day on the job is an opportunity to change lives— and in the NYPD we get to do that every single day.”
