THE BRONX -

Officers with the NYPD took some time on Christmas to visit the mother of a slain hero.

Officers at the 46th Precinct posted a photo of a surprise visit to the mother of Detective Miosotis Familia.

She was gunned down in her mobile command unit last year.

The officers' patrol hats were replaced by festive Santa and Christmas tree caps.

They also posted a picture with the caption "Merry Christmas to our dear mama, Ms. Adriana Valoy, mother of our fallen hero, Detective Miosotis Familia. God bless you and the entire Familia familia."
