Stacey Goodman began her career as a police officer as a patrol officer for the Suffolk County Police Department, on Long Island. Before that she had served as a volunteer patrol officer.
During Stacey’s service with the police department, she also trained as a disaster relief specialist with the federal government.
When terrorists attacked New York City and the Pentagon, and crashed a commercial flight in Pennsylvania, Stacey was activated by the federal government, and assigned to work in the morgue in the heart of Ground Zero.
In the aftermath of working on 9/11 at Ground Zero, Stacey’s health began a gradual decline, but she was advanced to Police Detective, where she served for several years before retiring.
Stacey has received many letters of honor and distinction, including her designation as a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security.
