NY POLICE FOUNDATION SPENT $3,000 TO CREATE 'KERIK THE GREAT' BUSTS||
President Bush on Friday nominated former New York police
commissioner Bernard Kerik to replace Tom Ridge as Homeland
During his time in NY, Kerik was immortalized for the ages in a 7-pound sculpture bust.
The NY Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for programs to support NYPD officers, quietly spent about $3,000 for 30 busts of Kerik in 2002.
The 7-pound busts of "Kerik The Great" depict him in uniform, with a mustache and with his department name tag. Each is mounted on a wooden platform.
Pam Delaney, the foundation's executive director, said the group, whose stated mission is to improve the quality of police services through programs that cannot be funded by the city, was asked to create the busts by Kerik's aide. They were to be given to friends and visiting dignitaries.
Kerik "meant it as a nice gesture," a foundation official explained.
NEWSDAY learned of the busts through an anonymous e-mail message that said: "There are a few in headquarters and those who have them are laughing big-time."
None of the busts were given away and most of them remain at foundation headquarters at 345 Park Ave.
And now the move is on to prevent the busts from appearing on Internet trade sites. (Drudge Report)
