West Babylon - (WALK) The street where he lived for many years and raised his family will now bear his name.
More than 100 family, friends and fellow police officers gathered in West Babylon to express their love and respect for the late Peter Figoski as Midwood Road officially became "Officer Peter Figosky Way" Saturday.
Figosky, a 22-year police veteran, was killed in the line of duty in Brooklyn in December of 2011. He was promoted, posthumously, to detective. Figosky's daughters reportedly requested "officer" precede their father's name, because that's how they knew him.
In July a bridge on Route 109 spanning Sunrise Highway in West Babylon was renamed to honor Figoski.
