Hip, hip hooray!

Their motto is “To protect and serve,” and Police Officer Patrick Terlonge of the 63 Police Precinct certainly does. One of our borough’s finest was on patrol in an unmarked vehicle on April 4 when he spotted a robbery in process. The victim was on E. 56th Street near Ave. M when four miscreants attacked. She was koshed over the head by one, whilst another took her cellphone and the other two nefarious villains acted as lookouts. Three of the four were any match for PO Patrick, who leapt from his car, jumped into the fray and single-handedly apprehended three of the crooked crooks before running down the fourth after a brief chase.

No good deed goes unpunished, so with fanfare and jubilation Officer Patrick was named Cop of the Month at the 63rd Precinct Community Council’s monthly meeting on April 25 for his expert use of tactics on April 4 and was presented with a plaque from Commanding Officer Captain Rowell. Standing O feels safe knowing Officer Patrick is out there.

63rd Police Precinct [1844 Brooklyn Ave., between Avenues I and J in Flatbush, (718) 258-4411].
