On Monday night the 84th Precinct, which covers Brooklyn Heights, named P.O. Saief Hasnain Cop of the Year for his outstanding achievement in fighting DWIs in the area.
Brooklyn Eagle: Hasnain has made 116 arrests since he became a cop in 2007. He made 19 DWI arrests last year and arrested 16 more for driving with suspended licenses.
“When I took over this post, one of the commitments I made was to aggressively pursue traffic safety, and we felt with that in mind that Officer Hasnain’s work was so important,” said Capt. Maximo Tolentino. “This type of work saves many lives, and I’m proud of his personal achievement. This community needs police officers that are dedicated to this type of work.”
Borough President Eric Adams, a former police captain, was also on hand, and he made it a point to thank Hasnain’s family — his wife Jerine, brother Samid and son Ayan.
