NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Keith Mann, Founder of New York company Dynamic Search Partners, is showing his support for the NYPD in response to protests and violence surrounding the police force. Keith Mann and his wife Keely Mann made a gesture of thanks by sending lunch to the 54th Street precinct to boost moral rather than feed into the negativity surrounding the force.
Keith Mann has a personal connection to the New York Police Department. Keely Mann's uncle is a detective in Staten Island.
"With the recent attacks on police officers during what were supposed to be peaceful protests, the actions against the police department fall close to home for me," Keith Mann explained.
To show his support for the officers, Keith Mann sent lunch to the 54th Street precinct in early January. Knowing that a single action often goes unnoticed, Keith Mann sent lunch to the precinct again on February 9.
"Our officers deserve to be thanked for their service, not attacked in their attempts to keep people safe," Keith Mann said. "Policemen have families too and are people just like you and me behind those uniforms."
Officers react according to their training in situations that civilians do not encounter. In the end, Keith Mann does not want to see his or any other family hurt due to careless action against the police department.
Rising violence has been a cause of concern for Keith Mann, who feels that citizens should be helping the police rather than standing in the way of their efforts.
Citizens like Keith Mann have been making an effort to support the police in light of the recent conflicts. There was a support rally for the New York Police Department in January which was attended by over 150 people. Similar rallies have been held around the United States despite the increase in violent actions toward those who defend the police department. Supporters claim that the silent majority still support the police and need to make their voice heard. Keith Mann believes that even simple actions can make a world of difference when showing support for the people who protect citizens everyday.
Keith Mann co-founded hedge fund Dynamic Search Partners in 2001. Dynamic Search Partners works with hedge funds to fill staffing needs. Dynamic Search Founders was founded after Mann climbed through the ranks at Dynamic Associates. Mann is a philanthropist who works with Uncommon Schools to give students the tools they need to find jobs after college. Mann has also donated money to Hope and Heroes.
