Stamp in honor of Joe Petrosino


The Italian Post has issued a stamp commemorating the 150th birthday of Joseph Petrosino, famous American policeman of Italian origin.

Giuseppe "Joe" Petrosino (August 30, 1860 - March 12, 1909) was a New York City police officer who was a pioneer in the fight against organized crime. The various crime fighting techniques that Petrosino pioneered during his law enforcement career are still practiced by various agencies in the fight against crime.
