Once a year, a group of active and retired members of the New York City Police Department gather at a little-known burial ground to pay respects to fallen cops and honor a little piece of their history. They will meet again this Saturday morning at Cypress Hills Cemetery, where the Police Arlington was established more than 100 years ago as a resting place for members of the Metropolitan Police Force. There has been much talk about restoring the site, which is now controlled by the NYPD Honor Legion. But despite two years of discussions, memorial services and even a visit from Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, little has changed. The pedestal that held a bronze statue of a police officer stands empty. The statue - and police badge plaques - were stolen decades ago. Supporters say they desperately want to raise money to replace the statue and further renovate the burial ground. They have received offers of help from artists and others who promised to volunteer their efforts. But no changes can be made without the approval of the Honor Legion. "We are losing historical NYPD artifacts year by year," said Dan Carione, a retired deputy inspector. "This place is here for us to protect. It belongs to every member of the NYPD." Carione, along with retired Lt. Joe Wolf and retired Police Officer Bobby Berl, has worked to raise awareness of the site. They keep an eye on it and plan the annual ceremony, which started in 2009. Berl routinely places flags at gravesites and wreaths on the pedestal during the holidays. Several police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty are buried there, including Patrolman Henry Haywood, one of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders. It's unclear who else has been buried there over the years. Honor Legion officials said they believe most of the plots are those of either police officers or family members of police officers. Retired NYPD Detective Andrew Siroka, executive director of the Honor Legion, said the group is focused on its scholarship program as well as its widows and orphans fund. He said the Honor Legion holds an annual dinner to raise money for those programs and isn't sure the money could be redirected to fixing up the Police Arlington. "We haven't fully determined if we are going to restore the statue or make a memorial," said Siroka. He also said the Honor Legion does not always participate in the annual memorial service because members fear other families of fallen officers would feel ignored. Carione said he and others would be willing to raise money to improve the barren site. In addition, he thinks the plots should be open to retired police officers searching for a dignified final resting place. Siroka said the Honor Legion is evaluating its options for the site. "This whole issue may not be making me any friends with the living," Carione admitted. "But when it's all said and done, I will have a lot of friends in the hereafter."
