Death in the Family

It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Traffic Enforcement Agent Stanley Heneson yesterday from complications related to COVID-19.

Stanley, who was assigned to the Brooklyn Traffic Enforcement Unit, dutifully served the NYPD and the people of New York City for more than six years.

Today and every day forward, we hold Stanley and all who knew and cared for him close to our hearts, and we vow to never forget his service and sacrifice.
