About EDWARD YATES

Edward R. Yates began his distinguished career with the New York City Department of Correction on February 11, 1999. After receiving great knowledge, and training while in the Correction Academy, he started behind the gates of GRVC known as the Beacon.

In 2002 Edward decided to better his career, and joined the Emergency Service Unit.

In 2005 his hard work, dedication, and reliability paid off, and the Emergency Service Unit offered him a full time position. His interest in the COBA began to grow after he joined ESU believing he could be of great help to the membership.

In 2011 he was appointed the position of a COBA trustee, which is now known as the Rapid Response Unit. Responding to hospitals, precincts, jails, and assisting with parades, funerals, and COBA functions, is just a few of the many things done while being part of the COBA Rapid Response Unit.

As of July 1, 2020, he was elected to the position of Brooklyn Borough Trustee, and will continue to strive for the betterment of his fellow brothers and sisters in blue. He has been, and will continue to be, the consummate professional he's been throughout his tenured career.
