Det. Stephen Agosta of the 62nd Precinct received the Assistant Chief Patrick D. Brennan Police Officer of the Year Award Oct. 26.
The award goes to officers who best follow the professional example set by Brennan, who died in 1999.
Agosta, a 36-year NYPD veteran, has been the precinct’s community affairs liaison for 20 years.
Family, friends and colleagues joined Assistant Chief Michael Kemper at the ceremony outside the 67th Precinct in Flatbush.
“I feel humbled and honored to get this award,” Agosta said. “I remember Chief Brennan and what he represented, which was the best of humanity. It’s wonderful to be a part of his legacy.”
“Steve is invaluable to the Bensonhurst community,” said a statement from the 62nd Precinct. “Congratulations.”
