Fellow officers gathered at a funeral home in New Hyde Park for Police Officer Emilia Rennhack

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a former police captain, called the 30-year-old Deer Park resident “the best of our city," saying she had immigrated from Poland to pursue the American dream and dedicated her life so others could do the same.

Her husband, Detective Carl Rennhack remembered her as a “pillar” of the community and lamented that the couple had “so many more plans” for their future.

P.O.Rennhack had been on the job since 2018 and was assigned to the 102 Pct in Ozone Park where her husband also worked as a detective.
