MY NAME IS JACK
My career took me from precinct uniform and plainclothes patrol in Brooklyn’s 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, as a police officer, sergeant and lieutenant. I also served in the Emergency Service Unit (ESU) for 16 years, whose primary focus is to provide Rescue, Tactical, and Counter-Terrorism services to the City of New York. I had the good fortune to be assigned to ESU in the same three ranks. I was then selected to command the elite Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT) where I coordinated the response of over one-hundred trained negotiators who responded to approximately forty assignments per month. I remained in my assignment with HNT for over fourteen years.
