Before he was 30, Carl Achille had served America in two profound ways. A native New Yorker with Haitian roots, Achille, served in the United States Army following the attacks on New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. By 19 years old, he was already a war veteran. In 2008, he joined the New York City Police Department, serving in the communities of Brooklyn North and quickly rose to the Street Narcotics Unit in East Harlem. He was also selected to the elite Organized Crime Control Bureau in the Gang Division, earning the Gold Detective Shield.
