Torsiello had served with the NYPD's 30th Precinct, which memorialized the fallen officer in an announcement on social media on Saturday, May 25. 

"Officer Torsiello, with only 3 years of service, had already made a name for herself protecting West Harlem," the department said, adding, "Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers." 

Following Torsiello's death, a GoFundMe page was created and shared by the NYC Police Benevolent Association to raise donations for her family. 

"Juliana was well known for her room-illuminating smile, her kind soul, and her unwavering passion," the fundraiser page reads, continuing, "We are starting this GoFundMe in an effort to aid her family with any outstanding expenses and anything they may need to lay a beautiful soul to rest."
