Annual Programs


The Annual
Police Officer Of The Year Awards Program


Each year, the Chamber and its business members want to recognize and publicize the outstanding contributions made by the New York Police Department to the Staten Island community. This prestigious honor is designated for those men and women who go above and beyond the call of duty. The awards are given out at the Chamber's annual Police Officer of the Year Awards Luncheon. 



The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce’s Safety and Security Committee was formed to educate the community on crime trends, solutions, and methods to protect the property and assets of local businesses. It holds seminars, workshops, and develops strategies to help protect businesses from crime, and ensure a safe and healthy working environment across Staten Island. 

Every year, the group also serves as the selection committee for the Annual Police Officer of the Year Luncheon and the Annual FDNY Valor Awards Luncheon. Both events are held to honor the NYPD’s finest and bravest, as well as to continue the strong working relationship between the business community and the NYPD and FDNY.
