A community organization honored some of the NYPD's finest on Wednesday.
NYPD officers from the 123rd precinct received certificates recognizing their achievements at the Jewish Community Center as part of a "Medal Day Ceremony".
The Council of Jewish Organizations paid tribute to more than 60 officers during the ceremony with awards in categories like "excellent police duty" and "most arrests."
Public Advocate Letitia James thanked the officers and their families for their service.
"It's really critically important that we take time out of our busy schedules to hold them up and to honor them," said James.
"We get a lot of support from the 123 community, it's the best community in the city, they're very supportive of the police," said the 123rd Precinct's Captain and Commanding Officer, Matthew Harrington.
"It's just a small token of saying thank you to the men and women in uniform who protect us 24 hours a day," said President of COJO Staten Island Mendy Mirocznik.
Wednesday ceremony was the first for the 123 precinct.
