Bay Ridge honored its cops last week, paying special tribute to 51 officers who performed outstanding police work in 2007.
More than 150 people thanked the top cops from the 68th Precinct at “Medal Day” on April 3 in the auditorium of the Poly Prep Country Day School.
“It’s for the cops themselves,” said Deputy Inspector Eric Rodriguez, commanding officer. “It’s something we do every year to acknowledge the great work that our police officers do, day in and day out.”
Honorees included officers Vito Viola and Lance Sigman, who delivered a baby.
