DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN (WABC) -- An awards ceremony was held in Brooklyn Thursday to honor detectives for their work in solving cases and tracking down criminals.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams recognized over 40 detectives from police precincts across the borough in the courtroom of Brooklyn Borough Hall.
Joined by their families, the detectives were cited for performing outstanding work as part of their duties, including past and present cases that have resulted in thousands of arrests.
Among those honored were the investigators that helped apprehend those responsible for the shooting of a pregnant woman in Red Hook this past August, who lost her unborn child as a result.
