Around 1:15 p.m. today, almost immediately after graduating from the Police Academy with his fellow cadets at the WaMu Theatre, new Police Officer Dariel Firpo (pictured) apprehended a robbery suspect. NYPD says Jeffrey Grant, 47, snatched an old man's wallet over by Penn Station, pushed the old man to the ground, and tried to flee. Officer Firpo happened to be on the scene, grabbed Grant, and took him into custody. "Officer Firpo made us all proud," said Commissioner Ray Kelly. "He's off to a great start."
