November 2022 Officers of the Month Announced

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) today announced Officers Brunel Victor and Taufique Bokth of the New York Police Department as the Officers of the Month for November 2022. The officers were selected for the honor after rescuing a man who stumbled and fell down onto active subway tracks in Manhattan.

On the afternoon of November 24, 2022, Officers Victor and Bokth were on foot patrolling the southbound platform of the Lexington Ave and East 116th Street subway station. They raced to the opposite side after being alerted that a man had fallen on the northbound tracks. After jumping down onto the track bed, and with the help of bystanders, they were able to quickly hoist the man back onto the platform. Within seconds of them helping the man and pulling themselves back up, the No. 6 train pulled into the station at full speed. Thankfully, all involved were uninjured.

“The selfless actions of these officers and their immediate response to a citizen in need undoubtedly saved a life,” said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. “It is not difficult to imagine a far different outcome had these officers not acted so quickly and decisively. We are proud to honor these two officers as Officers of the Month for November 2022.”
