National Law Enforcement Day
When: Wednesday, January 09 2019
MDC was honored to work with the producers of Fox & Friends to help produce a 2hr live segment for National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. We gathered nearly 100 police chiefs, captains, state troopers, detectives, federal agents, officers and even the NJ State Police Pipes & Drums from precincts throughout New York and NJ to come out and share what it means to be a police officer. We were proud to shine a well-deserved spotlight on Dr. Richard Celeste for his long and highly-decorated career in law enforcement. Dr. Celeste is the father of MDC founder, Meagan Celeste. We formed our Active Response Team to provide civilian support for First Responders like him and many others. Dr. Celeste was deputy chief of detectives and director of one of the top police academies in the country. He has trained over 30K officers, is a college professor of criminal justice, a published author and the first certified litigation specialist in the tristate area. He is a lifetime achievement award recipient from the FBI and the International Association of Martial Arts for his excellence in law enforcement training.
