Featured Speaker: Robert Knightly
My Perspective on Police Shootings

Mr. Knightly joined the New York City Police Department in 1967. For most of the next 20 years he patrolled the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan as patrol officer and sergeant, except for stints as speech writer, Police Academy Instructor and lawyer within the Department. He was a Patrolman during the time of the Knapp Commission investigation into police corruption and after, in the Department’s Post-Knapp revival. He knew the reformer Frank Serpico and the notorious ‘Prince of the City’, Robert Leuci. He was on the streets of Bushwick, Brooklyn on July 13, 1977, when the lights went out all over the city triggering a night and a day of looting, recounted in “The Bronx Is Burning”.

In 1989, Mr. Knightly joined the New York City Legal Aid Society, Criminal Defense Division, as a trial lawyer. For the next 18 years, he worked in the Manhattan and Queens County Criminal Courts. Born and raised in New York City, he relocated to Albany, New York in 2007. He now practices in the Criminal and Family Courts of Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady and Saratoga Counties…and writes fiction.   robertknightly.blogspot.com
