PBA President reacts to officer who bought boots for a homeless man

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Like most NYC police officers, Larry DePrimo joined the force to help people. His spontaneous act of kindness to a less fortunate man is just one of thousands of random acts of kindness that police officers routinely do to help someone in need. It’s not unusual for an officer to dip into his or her own pocket or to reach out to help secure aid for someone in need. It happens all of the time and it is usually unseen. We commend Larry and all of his brother and sister officers for all the unseen good they do everyday.”
