Captain Edward Winksi holds up log book with President Obama’s signature after his visit to the 1st Precinct on May 5, 2011


At 12:30 p.m. Thursday, President Barak Obama’s limousine pulled up to the 1st precinct stationhouse in TriBeCa, just blocks from the World Trade center site. Once inside, there was a strong show of the support from the New York City Police Department.

Officers proudly showed off where the commander-in chief signed into the stationhouse’s log book, with his name and “God Bless.” “On a personal level, it was an honor to meet with him, to say thank you and shake his hand,” said Lieutenant Franco Barberio of Emergency Services.
