First Chassidic NYPD Trainee

The NY Post dedicated this morning's cover to a Chassid, Joel Witriol, who has enrolled in the NYPD's Police Academy. He started off on this career track after he did a stint as an auxiliary officer, patrolling the streets of Brooklyn.

The department will have to issue exemptions to allow him to maintain his beard and payos, as well as allowing him to take Shabbat and Jewish holidays off, which they say should be no problem with a "note from his Rabbi".

I think that this young man is setting a great example of public service for others in the Orthodox and Hassidic community.

From what I know of Boro Park and Williamsburg, being a police man is the secret dream of every chasidishe kid.

It was just reported today in the DAily News that he was not hired by the NYPD because he was 4 college credits shy of qualifying

As someone who deals with the police everyday as a reault of my profession, I can tell you in fact he is not the first "chasidic" member. There is already a Chabad member who is an NYPD officer as well as at least a minyan of kippah wearing, or at least shomer shabbat men and women who patrol NYC

Post all wrong on Hasidic cop hire

A Hasidic scholar from Brooklyn wasn't hired as part of the NYPD's newest class of recruits as the New York Post claimed on its front page yesterday, authorities said.
Joel Witriol, 24, was four credits shy of meeting the NYPD's requirement of 60 college credits, and was not part of the latest class of 1,560 recruits.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Witriol could reapply if he fulfills the education requirement. Kelly said the department had hired Orthodox Jewish recruits in the past.

Witriol learned yesterday that he had been passed over, authorities said. He could not be reached for comment.

Police officials said it was not unusual, given the volume of applicants, that candidates are told at the last minute whether they should report for the recruits' first day.

I hope that he finds a lot of success in the department and will become a role model for many young kids.

Barasch. Leaving the younger son of the late grand Rabbi Moses Teitelbaum - Rabbi Zalman - In Control of the Satmar Hasidic Sect.

The information about the first Hasidic is wrong. I am a Jewish retired NYPD officer who was also a delegate for the NYPD Shomrim Society. When I was a rookie in the 80's there was an Hasidic officer working in the 71 Precinct on Empire and Brooklyn. He was assigned to community affairs for obvious reasons. I think yhe fact checkers should check with the Seven-One.

This information made me have some memories when my uncle was part of the police he was so serious doing his work at the same time patrolling the streets.
