EMERALD SOCIETY
CORRECTION DEPARTMENT
CITY OF NEW YORK
Keeping the Tradition Alive since 1955

It was during the 1950s that the movement for Emerald Societies took hold with the formation of NYPD Emerald Society (March 16, 1953), NYCD Emerald Society (November 17, 1955), and FDNY Emerald Society (March 17, 1956). The Emerald movement led to the formation of Emerald Societies in New York and across the country.

The NYCD Emerald Society was organized on November 17, 1955, by our 1st President, James Mulvey, and is the second oldest Emerald Society.

Since our very beginning in 1955 our main goals are to teach and preserve the Irish Culture, promote the contributions of our ancestors, and recognize the accomplishments of Irish Americans in Law Enforcement.

We are currently in our 67th year of “Keeping the Tradition Alive.”

Our membership comprises active/retired uniformed members of service (UMOS) and civilian members of the Correction Department of New York City who are of Irish Lineage or have “Irish Spirit.”
