Brooklyn borough president honors NYPD Explorers, Junior’s legacy
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams honored members of the NYPD Explorers Program Wednesday night, as well as the legacy of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.
Junior, a member of the program before his stabbing death earlier this year, was honored with a posthumous citation award accepted by his parents.
The teen was killed in what police say was a gang stabbing carried out by members of the Trinitarios street gang outside a bodega in June.
Police have made 14 arrests in the case.
According to the NYPD, the Explorers program provides young men and women from the city's diverse communities with an introduction to a career in law enforcement or a related field in the criminal justice system.
