Winston M. Faison Sr. As a young African American male born and raised in East New York Brooklyn, I knew early in life my passion was to serve my community. After receiving my Bachelor's Degree, I chose to pursue a career in teaching . After working for the Board of Education for three years, I decided to change career paths and join the New York Police Department. I am currently a 20 year veteran of the NYPD. I focused my energy to be in a position to implement positive changes that will benefit the City of New York. I rose through the ranks of the Police Department , currently at the rank of Inspector, Commanding Officer of the Youth Strategies Division. I believe Opportunities and experiences should be available to all. Aviation4us will offer young men and women an opportunity to expand their horizon by exposing them to the field of aviation.
