The PERF Board selected New Rochelle Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll as the recipient of the 2015 PERF Leadership Award. Commissioner Carroll was presented with the award at PERF’s Annual Meeting in Phoenix.
Commissioner Carroll was a member of the NYPD for 28 years, retiring as an inspector. In 1993 he was selected to be the commissioner of the New Rochelle Police Department, a role he has now held for 22 years.
“Pat has had a remarkable career in our profession, and is also a mentor to many of the younger chiefs. I’ve always been able to count on Pat for reassuring, calm guidance during my 14 years as a chief,” said PERF Board Member Dan Oates, who presented the award along with PERF President Charles Ramsey and PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler.
“I’ve had a great 50 years in policing. This recognition by the Board is really an honor for me and the capstone to a great career. I’ll cherish it always,” Commissioner Carroll said in receiving the award.
