Supreme Court Justice Presents 100 Precinct Awards
|The commanding officer of the 100 Precinct, Captain Paul Piekarski, speaks to the crowd. Piekarsky, who came to the meeting late because he and his team were executing a warrant, answered questions about quality of life issues in the precinct.
Supreme Court Justice Martin Ritholtz, a Bayswater resident, came to the 100 Precinct Community Council this week to speak about the workings of the court and to assist the precinct’s commanding officer in handing out several “Cop of the Month” awards. Pictured, Ritholtz speaks as officers of the community council, including president Jate Doremus, listen.
Captain Piekarsky presents award to Police Officer Paul Cappa, who not only assisted in the water rescue of two people last summer, but made an arrest in a stabbing homicide early this year.
Captain Piekarski congratulates Police Officer John Bellicoe, a member of the precinct’s anti-crime team for his work in the arrest of men who were shooting guns from Bay Towers on New Year’s Eve.
Sergeant Joseph Cerrato and Lieutenant Derrick Corrado received awards for their work in the arrest of a local pizza deliveryman who had a weapon in his car and 36 more at home.
