The Life and Legacy of Lieutenant Petrosino
The New York City Police Museum is proud to announce the opening of its newest exhibit celebrating “The Life and Legacy of Lieutenant Petrosino,” one of the most famous officers in the history of the NYPD. The exhibit tells the story of Lieutenant Petrosino, from his arrival in New York as a young boy in 1872, to his rise through the ranks of the NYPD, to his secret mission to Italy and subsequent murder in 1909. Lieutenant Petrosino remains the only New York City Police Officer to be killed in the line of duty while overseas.

The exhibit opened October 22, 2009 in celebration of Italian Heritage Month. The collection is both unique and extraordinary; all of the original photographs, documents and artifacts within this collection, loaned by Lieutenant Petrosino’s family, have waited 100 years to make their first-ever public debut.
