July 27, 2016
Detective Joe Sweeney was an NYPD officer and detective for over 21 years serving his city and his country. Both his proudest and saddest day on the job was 9/11/2001 when he was called to work in the smoke and the ash and search first for survivors – then for remains.Joe spoke as an American first. He stood there as a shining example of the many humble and selfless law enforcement officers who protect us across this country every day. Way to go Joe!
