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 21-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, prior Commanding Officer of both the 61st precinct and the 81st precinct and current Commanding Officer of the Youth Strategies Division within the Community Affairs Bureau. 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.
