    And the award goes to... the NYPD.

    Two New York City police precincts are being honored by the committee that runs the Tony Awards.

    The Midtown North and Midtown South precincts are being awarded the Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theatre. The committee says the awards are in recognition of the precincts' work in the city's theater district.

    On May 1, police dealt with a potential car bomb that had been parked outside the theater where "The Lion King" plays. In December, a plainclothes cop killed a suspected scam artist near a landmark Broadway hotel after a gunfight.

    The Tony Honors are given to people or organizations with extraordinary achievements in theater outside the regular categories.

    The Tony Awards are scheduled for June 13.
