Borough President Eric Adams recognized over 40 detectives from police precincts across the borough on Thursday, November 19 at an awards ceremony held in the courtroom of Brooklyn Borough Hall (209 Joralemon Street).
Flanked by their families, honorees were cited for their outstanding work—past and present—that has led to countless arrests.
“Detective work is more than ‘Law and Order’-like glamour; it is a difficult pursuit of criminals that closes cases and brings closure for communities impacted by crime,” said Adams, a former NYPD captain. “As a veteran of New York’s Finest, I salute all of Brooklyn’s detectives and express gratitude, on behalf of all Brooklynites, for the sacrifices they and their families make every day to make our borough a safer place to raise healthy children and families.”
Adams was joined at the ceremony by members of NYPD leadership as well as Con Edison, the event’s co-sponsor.
“I am extremely grateful to Borough President Adams for recognizing these dedicated detectives that went beyond their call of duty to investigate serious crimes in the borough of Brooklyn and continue to keep it safe,” said Assistant Chief Patrick Conry, commander of Detective Borough Command Brooklyn.
