STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — NYPD officers from the 120th Precinct were honored with “Cop of the Month” awards for their incredible police work, including talking an emotionally disturbed person off a ledge, a patrol that turned into a foot pursuit, and nabbing a suspect after discovering a unique tattoo.

“I am honored to lead this great group of officers,” said Deputy Inspector Joseph Simonetti, the St. George-based precinct’s commanding officer.

“And blessed to be a part of their lives, and all the great work they do.”
