Benjamin Ambrosio was a police officer for over ten years in New York City. During that time, he participated in over 120 arrests, working to dispel corruption and fighting the unlicensed operation of motor vehicle. He earned three Exemplary Police Duty medals for his role in attempted bribery arrests and for arresting and investigating people for operating motor vehicles without a license. He understood his role in the larger criminal justice system on the city, state, and federal level as a police officer. This system is stronger with the help of qualified and careful officers like Ambrosio, who spent years doing the work to keep his fellow citizens safe.
There are three main components of the American Criminal Justice system: legislative, adjudication, and corrections. Without a strong and competent police force, the levels of the criminal justice system wouldn’t work to serve and protect anyone. Benjamin Ambrosio made it his duty to work with the community and help keep the system moving toward justice and fairness as much as possible. Functionally, police officers feed the adjudication and corrections levels of the criminal justice system, but if they work well and are trained properly, they can be a much more effective force in keeping people safe on the neighborhood and community level.
Benjamin Ambrosio has worked hard to maintain the fair and safe use of the criminal justice system on the streets of New York City for years and cherished his role in the system. He knows that with careful, fair, and compassionate policing focused on the community, local police forces can provide a useful service to all Americans.
