Brendan Glynn 1992 Medal Day Captains Endowment Association Medal for Valor
Brendan Glynn was sworn in as a New York City Police Officer in January 1985 and shortly after was assigned to the 44th Precinct, Bronx New York. Within no time he was making dozens of quality arrests, (illegal firearms & narcotics). In November 1986 while off-duty Officer Glynn attempted to disarm a perpetrator armed with a large hunting knife. A violent struggle ensued resulting in PO Glynn being stabbed, slashed and seriously injured before the perp was restrained, (sadly enough no Department recognition/medal was ever submitted upon his behalf for his valiant actions taken ). In 1991 Police Officer Glynn received a meritorious field promotion to Detective Specialist, (with ONLY a little over 4 years assigned to the street). Over the course of his career was involved in four shootings, (resulting in 3 perpetrators being shot). In one of the incidents Officer Glynn shot and killed a perp who shot and critically wounded another Police Officer. Officer Gylnn was credited with saving the officers life.
