Cop snags honors for burglary collars

The 62nd Precinct awarded its Cop of the Month honor to Police Officer Ralph Postiglione on Tuesday, January 20 at the monthly community council meeting.

Postiglione is a 10-year veteran of the force and played a key role in the November, 2014 arrests of four men connected with community break-ins after he saw and recognized one of the quartet as a burglary recidivist. Postiglione led the pursuit of the suspects, who were eventually charged with trespassing, burglary, larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and other offenses.

Postiglione was also presented with citations for his bravery from State Senator Marty Golden and Councilmembers Mark Treyger and Vincent Gentile.
