Auxiliary Sergeant Larry I. Cohen will never be forgotten. Thank you for your dedicated service to the people of NYC, especially those people who travel on our highways. My dear cousin, Kenton Britt also died as a result of a vehicle striking him on the Van Wyck highway as he and other officers investigated a MVAA. May your soul rest in Heaven.
