While the HCNY Foundation started with a focus on providing scholarship funds for Harvard College students, it has since expanded its activities.
Captain Timothy Malin
Timothy Malin, from White Plains, New York, received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Notre Dame with a dual major in English and history.
Tim has been a Police Sergeant and Police Captain with the City of New York Police Department. His most recent role within the NYPD is Crime Analysis Unit Head. Tim is responsible for the identification, analysis and tracking of all crime trends and patterns within the Bronx’s 41st precinct.
Tim’s primary career goal is to excel and advance as a member of the New York City Police Department. While he began his professional life in the private sector, he felt something was missing and recalled the call to service that was an underlying theme during his years at Notre Dame. Dedicated to the City of New York, Tim believed he could best serve by becoming a police officer and embracing the NYPD motto of “Courtesy, Professionalism, and Respect.” Ultimately, he hopes to become a precinct commander and then to assume a police department policy-making management position.
In order to achieve his career goals, Tim is pursuing his MC/MPA and will combine his educational experience with his street-level experience in order to achieve a just and analytical style of leadership. He believes that interaction with Harvard Kennedy School faculty as well as his fellow classmates will deepen his understanding of how to affect public policy for the benefit of his community.
