Businessperson and philanthropist Keith Mann has taken the time to show his support for the New York Police Department as protests grew over a suspected police shooting. The NYPD had been under pressure at the start of 2015 over its role in a police shooting, which had resulted in protests and reports of attacks on police officers across the city. Keith and Kelly Mann explained the reasons for their support of the police in a press release published through PR Newswire that explained they had provided lunch for officers at the 54th Precinct on two separate occasions.
Despite the success Keith Mann has enjoyed as a recriutment specialist for Wall Street he has often shown the largest amount of pride in his work as a philanthropist. Mann has not only looked to provide support for the police department, but also works to allow young people in need to complete an education preparing them for college through the Uncommon Schools system. Students preparing to apply for college can gain expert advice in creating resumes and preparing for interviews through the schools Mann raises funds for on a regular basis.
Keith Mann decided he and wife Kelly should show their support for the NYPD by providing a free lunch for the 54th Precinct as close family members work in law enforcement. The knowledge that the vast majority of police officers are hard working and looking to aid society drove the Mann’s to make a statement at a time when the NYPD is under growing pressure. Keith Mann also explained how he hoped his actions would show the general public how even a small action can change the relationship between law enforcement and the public.
