Niculus Favorite, 17, a student at Canarsie High School, looked like he was made to be a police commander. He fit right in after being named one of 36 teenagers named as New York Police Department high-scale officers as they were sworn in to special positions by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, with PAL Chairman Robert Morganthau participating in the ceremony.

After the traditionl ceremony at One Police Plaza in Manhattan, the “officers” proceeded to their various commands, with Favorite taking his post “replacing” the 69th Precinct”s Commanding Officer Captain Milt Marmara.

Commander Favorite got a chance to check out a few of the facilities at the station house on Foster Avenue, touring the cell area and taking charge of the comings and goings of personnel on duty and officiating during the afternoon shift change, where he dispensed the orders of the day. The young man also learned about fingerprinting procedures and reviewing proposed activities of the day.
