We aim to spread the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ throughout the New York Police Dept. and all of Law Enforcement.


Formed in 1937 by NYPD Chaplain A. Hamilton Nesbitt who for years had a dream of uniting the Protestant police officers of the NYPD into an organization tasked with serving them spiritually, socially & professionally. After consultation with the NYC Police Commissioner and encouragement of several other officials, Chaplain Nesbitt founded the St. George Association of the NYPD.

Police Officers have the greatest drain of any workforce in America. In the course of our duties we are subjected to all things. We frequently stand in danger of physical injury and death. The St. George Assoc. encourages its members to live their faith both on and off-duty thus embodying what St. Paul wrote “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” - Colossians 3:17.

Ever since its founding, the organization has grown to include civilian members of the NYPD and Law Enforcement Officers from other government agencies.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another - John 13:34

WHo is Saint George?

Saint George was a Roman soldier of Greek Palestinian origin. After a decorated career in the Roman army, he was assigned to the elite Praetorian Guard under Emperor Diocletian.

Fearing the growing influence of Christianity, Diocletian ordered all Christians expelled from the Roman military. Upon hearing the imperial order, Saint George publicly declared himself
a Christian.

He would be beheaded for refusing to recant his Christian faith. St. George stands as the most notable & venerated Christian military martyr in all history.
