Call him Book ’em Bosch!

Officer Lawrence Bosch was named Cop of the Year in the 84th Precinct last week, an accolade he won by making a whopping 54 arrests in 2010.

Bosch, 29, works in the precinct’s elite Downtown Squad, which patrols commercial hotspots such as the Fulton Mall, where a spate of robberies last year had residents, shoppers and merchants on edge.

Bosch, a Carroll Gardens resident and seven-year police veteran, helped squelch the pattern.

“He shows what an officer with energy and zest can do,” his commanding officer, Capt. Mark DiPaolo, told the 84th Precinct Community Council, a civic group, at its meeting last Tuesday.

Bosch took the praise — and the wooden plaque bearing his name — in stride.

“I just do my work and try to move on to bigger and better things,” he said.

Watch out, captain!
