Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners decided to give the officers of the 54th precinct a measure of gratitude for all that they do after the many demonstrations and acts of violence against police over the past year. Mann, a philanthropist, treated the officers to lunch in early January and again on February 9, hoping to boost morale, according to WSPA.
“Our officers deserve to be thanked for their service, not attacked in their attempts to keep people safe. Policemen have families too and are people like you and me behind those uniforms,”said Mann.
Keely Mann, wife of the donor, has an uncle who is a detective in the NYPD in Staten Island.
Mann feels that the police should be aided in their jobs by citizens, which would help to promote morale. He believes that small, random acts of support can boost morale.
His other philanthropic work includes helping college graduates find jobs through the charity Uncommon Schools. He has been in the executive search field for 15 years and has become an expert in the field of hiring, staffing and compensation of hedge fund personnel. In 2009 he founded Dynamics Search Partners, a leading search firm for the alternative investment field.
