McLoughlin, 28, has been assigned to NYPD’s Manhattan Midtown South precinct.
He has often been featured in the department’s Twitter page, which includes when he was acknowledged for helping take down a bank robber with a fellow officer.
‘PO McLoughlin apprehended [the] perpetrator in a bank robbery in progress… Job well done guys,’ police officials wrote in the tweet alongside a photo of the two officers.
