Meet Lt. Michael Almonte of the NYPD's Youth Services Division. As a teen, he had negative experiences with police, but that all changed when a cop in his neighborhood helped him realize his potential. Today, Lt. Almonte works with young people both on and off the job. He volunteers as a mentor for the New York City non-profit, Student Sponsor Partners, and has recruited more than 300 NYPD cops to become mentors. His personal Instagram account, LieutanantMike, aims to bridge the divide between New York City cops and the community..
