OSSINING, N.Y. -- An Ossining resident has been honored for his service in the New York City Police Department.

The Fund for the City of New York has announced the recipients of the 2016 Sloan Public Service Awards, the leading independent honor for city employees given each year to those who have built long careers serving New Yorkers, a release said.

Among the honorees are members of the New York Police Department 34th Precinct in Manhattan, neighborhood coordinating officers Detective Thomas Troppman and Police Officer Edwin Rodriguez, of Ossining.

This year’s recipients, who have worked for the City for a combined 200 years, include longtime employees of the NYPD, MTA, Human Resources Administration, Department of Health and Hospitals, Department of Environmental Protection, and the Department for the Aging.

The Sloan Awards were given out at each of the workplaces of the seven recipients June 8 and a celebration took place at Cooper Union in New York City.

Troppmann and Rodriguez are "transforming the perception and role of police in Washington Heights through a new NYPD initiative," said the release.

As Neighborhood Coordinating Officers, they work as problem-solvers and community guardians who know their neighborhood intimately and work closely with residents and businesses as integral community partners to address public safety issues, according to the announcement.
