Four cops who busted a dastardly duo of robbers in Boerum Hill this summer were honored this week as the 84th Precinct’s cops of the month.

Sgt. James Glancy, Officer Carlos Peralta, Officer Washington Mosquera and Officer Francisco “Frank” Tejada picked up their awards at Tuesday night’s meeting of the the 84th Precinct Community Council, a residents’ group that acts as a liaison between cops and the community.

“Each of these guys has been cop of the month before,” said Council President Leslie Lewis.

“In my experience, cops of the month always get it more than once. It means they’re good at their jobs, and I think we’ll see them repeat again as cops of the month.”

This time, the officers got the honor for arresting two alleged robbers on Bergen Street between Hoyt and Bond streets when the foolhardy pair stuck up an off-duty cop — five minutes after they robbed somebody else on the same block.

Sgt. Glancy said they caught one knife-wielding perp on the spot — and he gave up his cohort, who got collared a week later. The muggers were charged with six different robberies near the Gowanus Houses.

These four officers don’t just nail muggers; their unit has caught neighborhood burglars in DUMBO as well as drug dealers and violent offenders, Lewis said.
