CBS News featured alumnus and fashion designer Telfar Clemens in "Everyone wants a piece of Telfar Clemens"

Telfar Clemens is creating his own fashion playbook and it's catapulting him to the top. The Queens native says he began designing clothes at 15 because he couldn't find any that fit his style. Clemens never received a formal fashion design education. Instead, he attended Pace University in Manhattan where he studied business management.

CBS New York featured Criminal Justice Professor Darrin Porcher in "Police Investigate Shootings In Brooklyn, Manhattan As Weekend Gun Violence Continues Into Workweek"

CBS New York featured Criminal Justice Professor Darrin Porcher in "Police Investigate Shootings In Brooklyn, Manhattan As Weekend Gun Violence Continues Into Workweek"

Darrin Porcher, professor of criminal justice at Pace University and a former NYPD lieutenant, said he blames defunding the police and failed leadership from the deBlasio Administration.

“The city is under siege. We’ve had multiple shootings this weekend alone. We’ve far eclipsed the number of shootings for the last 2 years in this year, 2020, alone,” said Porcher. “We need to have that manpower in place, and what it’s going to require is a greater amount of overtime.”

CBS New York featured criminal justice professor Dr. Darrin Porcher in "Mayor Says Wrong Time And Place For NYPD To Arrest Protester In Unmarked Van"

Dr. Darrin Porcher, a criminal justice professor at Pace University and former NYPD lieutenant, agrees.

“If I was still an active lieutenant in the NYPD, I would be 100% behind what took place,” Porcher told CBS2’s Jessica Layton.

Serving in the NYPD for 20 years, he calls this a sound tactic, even if it doesn’t look great given the times.

“The optics of arrest are always ugly,” he said. “Let’s say the officers elected not to take this individual into custody … That same individual goes out and continues to deface more security cameras … and then we have someone robbed or killed in that same area, and now people would bang on the desk and say, why don’t we have cameras? You know who this was that committed this act.”

CBS New York featured Dyson Professor Darrin Porcher in "Bottles And Garbage Thrown At NYPD Cruisers Responding To Possible Gunfire In Harlem"

Retired NYPD lieutenant Dr. Darrin Porcher teaches criminal justice at Pace University. He said the city needs stronger leadership.

“The antidote to this very contentious situation is a back channel negotiation between police executives, elected officials, and community leaders. If those three entities are not willing to coalesce by a plausible strategy then we are consistently going to see a higher level of crime,” Porcher said.

CBS New York featured Dyson Professor Darrin Porcher in "NYPD Experiences Increase In Members Filing For Retirement Amid Ongoing Protests, Spike In Shootings"

CBS New York featured Dyson Professor Darrin Porcher in "NYPD Experiences Increase In Members Filing For Retirement Amid Ongoing Protests, Spike In Shootings"

Porcher now teaches criminal justice at Pace University.

“The lack of support from political leaders is one component. The second component is the cantankerous relationship between police and community in connection with police and community relations, and third, you just have external issues such as many family members that may feel a sense of repulsiveness to you being an officer,” he said.
