TROY, N.Y. – A Troy police officer was honored with an excellence award Monday.
Officer Anthony Buttofucco was awarded the Chief John J. Givney Award. The award is given to the officer who demonstrates excellence and consistency in the job.
Buttofucco was chosen because he is the “go-to guy” when police have a serious crime, and they need an evidence technician.
“I’m proud to have my name next to the past recipients of the award, so although I’m honored, I believe what we do every day here is a team effort, and I’m proud to be a part of that team,” he said after receiving the award.
A wreath was laid at the Troy Police Fallen Officers Memorial following the awards breakfast.
