The NYPD’s oldest civilian employee, Teri Pellicano, was honored on Friday with a birthday bash thrown by her pals in the department’s Coney Island transit station.

Pellicano, 86, has been with the department since 1981, the capstone of a career that included a stint as a Vegas showgirl. “That’s off the record,” said one of the officers.

But others were more than happy to talk about Pellicano, a data-entry clerk whose as electric as a third rail.

“She’s great,” said Officer Alfonso Keitt. “She’s thoughtful and concerned all the time.”

Pellicano is the longest-serving civilian in the NYPD, but not the oldest, an honor that belongs to an 88-year-old crossing guard.
