This photo was submitted by Sgt. Kevin Mulrooney, NYPD
The photo was given to him by his grandfather, Michael Mulrooney
who was a NY Corrections Officer. The photo might be of a Sgt. Driscoll.
Officer Driscoll, or the officer in this photo, may have been killed
in the line of duty responding to a call when he fell from a trolley
and struck his head on the curb. The badge number on this cap device
appears to be 651. Anyone with information please Contact POLICE N.Y.
Please note: NYPD Angels shows a Sgt. John E. Hodgins
who died LOD under similar circumstances. Could this be Sgt. Hodgins?
