New York State Assemblyman Al Graf was on hand at the New York City Police Academy graduation to congratulate his daughter in a serendipitous turn of events.
Jean Marie Graf graduated at the top of her class and was assigned to Patrol Bureau Manhattan South, the same post her father patroled when he graduated from the academy 30 years ago.
The Assemblyman representing Holbrook had the privilege of pinning her NYPD shield on his daughter.
“I am so proud of Jean for graduating with such high honors," Graf said. "And to have her follow in myfootsteps is truly overwhelming."
