About Ralph Friedman
In the 1970s, Friedman began his police career in New York City's infamous 41st precinct, dubbed "Ft. Apache," which was home to every type of violent crime imaginable during the city's most violent years in the '70s and '80s. He found his true calling with the NYPD and developed an impressive reputation among both the department and criminals he locked up. Det. Friedman was involved in some of the most intense, life-threatening cases ever seen on the streets of NYC, from seemingly unsolvable murder cases to undercover busts and deadly shootouts in broad daylight. He was promoted to detective after five years, and his extraordinary career has been commemorated with 219 awards, including the department's second-highest honor: The Police Combat Cross.
