Members of the NYPD, along with family and friends, gathered outside the 63rd Precinct, 1844 Brooklyn Avenue, on Wednesday, August 31st to wish Sergeant Michael McGill a happy retirement and thank him for his tireless dedication to the NYPD and to the citizens of New York City.
Michael Kemper, commanding officer of Patrol Borough Brooklyn South, thanked McGill for a “26-year exceptional career.” McGill spent 18 of those 26 years serving in the 63rd Precinct and says he will always consider himself a “63” cop.
Although he said there were rough times and some rocky roads, McGill told a group of over 100 people who came to wish the dedicated officer a fond farewell, “I wouldn’t change being a cop for anything else in the world.” The large attendance is a small testament to the many lives McGill helped shape over his career.
Commanding Officer of the 63rd Precinct Captain Rachel Kosak recognized Sgt. McGill for his service, and former Commanding Officer Genevieve Isom was also in attendance.
