BROOKLYN - Law enforcement officials in Brooklyn are being honored for their work.

The 23rd annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Awards was held in Downtown Brooklyn today. Twenty honorees from the NYPD, FDNY, district attorney's office and other organizations were recognized for their dedication to the job and involvement with Brooklyn communities.

Among the honorees is officer Kevin Brennan, who got a standing ovation when he accepted his award. Brennan survived a gunshot to the head in January 2011 when he and other officers responded to a call at the Bushwick Housing Projects.

Brennan and other officers say it's a big honor to be recognized at the awards, but a bigger honor to serve the borough. District Attorney Charles Hynes says it's the least the borough can do to show appreciation for officers that serve year after year.
