Everyday Heroes, featuring NYPD Police Officer Amador Rivera

By day, Police Officer Amador Rivera is a Neighborhood Coordination Officer in the 88th Precinct, patrolling sector David with his partner, Police Officer Vinny Ciardiello.  By night, Officer Rivera is an avid comic book collector, toy collector and pop culture enthusiast.  A lifelong fanboy, Officer Rivera’s quest to collect all things pop culture began when his father bought him his first comic book.  Today his collection exceeds over 1000 comics, and has grown to include toys, movies, and limited-edition memorabilia.  In this video, we get to know Officer Rivera, learn the role that heroes play in our daily lives, and see how the presence of a guardian in our midst, and in our stories, can positively affect a community.
