WITH A LAST name like hers, how could anyone resist giving this year's George Fencl award to Officer AnnaMae Law of the 26th District? The award, given by the Daily News yesterday, honors a police officer who shows the same spirit of dedication, toughness, kindness and street smarts as the cop whose name is on the plaque: the legendary George Fencl, who led the Civil Affairs unit during the 1960s and '70s. By all accounts, Law is both cop and guardian angel to people most of us would avoid.

WHO IS Judge Frederica Massiah-Jackson kidding? Does she think anyone cares about "parameters of the rules of professional conduct and the code of civility"? We all know most lawyers don't care. What I and columnist Michael Smerconish and most normal citizens in Philadelphia care about is whether or not we have idiots serving on our benches. Thanks to Michael, we know we have at least one. Lisa Rau should let this thug and felon live in her house.

An old friend, a real old friend, turns 200 tonight. And none other than Julia Roberts shows up for the party. Law & Order, a weathered promontory in the TV landscape, where the average drama doesn't last a season, is on the way to completing its ninth. The show is a TV phenomenon, presented four times a day on cable's A&E, as well as Wednesday nights at 10 on NBC. In March, NBC signed an unprecedented deal for three more years of the show and also ordered a spinoff, Law & Order: SCU, about a New York Police Department sex crimes unit.

LAW & ORDER. 10 tonight, Channel 10. WE MAY BE saying goodbye to "Lost's" Jack Shephard and "24's" Jack Bauer, but I find it difficult to believe we're bidding farewell to Jack McCoy. Even if tonight's episode of NBC's "Law & Order" truly is the last of a 20-season run - and I say "if" because producer Dick Wolf reportedly hasn't given up his dream of a record-breaking 21st - New York District Attorney McCoy could still be back on NBC. The Sam Waterston character joined the mother ship in 1994 (only S. Epatha Merkerson's Lt. Anita Van Buren, there since 1991, has been in more episodes, scoring her own TV record for actress in a single series)

The Northeast Philadelphia man arrested for allegedly stalking Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Kathryn Erbe is now facing a federal interstate stalking charge in New York, officials said Tuesday. Charles Nagel, 36, has been in custody in Philadelphia since March, after New York City police got a warrant charging him with harassing and stalking Erbe. Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Patrick Cannon said an extradition hearing set for Tuesday at the Criminal Justice Center was canceled because of the new federal charge.

The break between seasons of HBO's "The Sopranos" may seem excruciatingly long to you, but for Michael Imperioli, it's just right. "For me, the idea that we're going back is enough security," Imperioli, who plays up-and-coming mobster Christopher Moltisanti, said this week in a conference call with reporters. "It's kind of a luxury to have a sure thing in this business and to have so much time in between to do other things. " One of those other things is a four-week stint on NBC's "Law & Order," filling in for Jesse L. Martin, who's skipping out a few weeks early this season to make the film of "Rent," returning to the role he originated in the Broadway musical.

Law & Order: Buenos Aires , anyone? If The Secret in Their Eyes suggests an artier take on an especially good episode of the ubiquitous TV procedurals (with some Cold Case flashbacks thrown in), the resemblance is more than coincidence. Juan José Campanella, the writer and director of the Argentine thriller - winner of this year's Academy Award for foreign-language film - is a veteran of several Law & Order iterations. And so, this tale of the pursuit of a rapist and murderer, with its grim crime scenes and testy interrogations, its legal strategizing, and third-act twist, has a certain Criminal Intent intensity, a Special Victims Unit specialness about it. Starring a melancholic Ricardo Darín as Benjamin, a criminal court investigator, The Secret in Their Eyes opens with a gauzy reverie at a train station - a man and a woman separated by a departing choo-choo.

THE ATTITUDES and practices of Sylvester Johnson as presented in your recent profile, "Behind the Badge," are examples of why the leadership of this city just doesn't get it. With an ever-climbing murder rate and an overall decline in the quality of life around the city, a top priority should not be diversity, but rather the presence of the most capable and qualified police force. Quotas should not get in the way of quality, especially in a time of crisis. On a related topic, having had many non-shooting-related calls to 911 ignored, I must say this: What are perceived as "small things" must not be ignored.

It worked for the Giants and the Dodgers. It worked for NCIS . So, the big guns at NBC figured, why not move Law & Order to California? Despite all the hoopla about other new series last season, NCIS: Los Angeles turned out to be the highest-rated freshman series, by a wide margin. Don't expect the same for Law & Order: Los Angeles , which premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. on NBC10. Fans of the original, which everyone in the business calls "The Mother Ship," will probably like the new one set in LaLa Land.

Terry Newton does not usually trust police officers. But after his 28-year-old son was shot and killed in Norristown last month, he found comfort at an unexpected place: the police station. Norristown police Chief Mark Talbot stood among Newton's family. He expressed sympathy for the death of Keithon Majors. He made eye contact. He answered questions. "It was almost like I was in his living room," Newton said. That approach is typical for Talbot. In his first 18 months on the job, the chief has worked to transform his department and overcome what borough officials called a long-standing lack of trust between residents and police.

BEN Bernanke exits his two terms as Fed chief this week generally regarded as the wonky econ nerd and student of the Great Depression who used his megamind to save our collapsed economy. He's credited with taking drastic action to restore some semblance of confidence in the financial system, and this he did. He bought up $4 trillion in mortgage bonds and securities from the big banks, shored up their balance sheets, paid off their worthless IOUs (the AIG bailout) and in the process kept rates low to help goose our anemic recovery.

The True Story of the Prosecutor Who Took On the Mob, Fought Corruption, and Won By Herbert J. Stern Skyhorse Publishing. 560 pp. $29.95 Reviewed by Rich Aregood Every freshman law student learns that he or she is there to learn about the practice of law. If justice happens along the way, it's a happy coincidence. Herb Stern was in the business of increasing the frequency of those coincidences, prosecuting the well-connected bad guys despite frequent pressure from above, and tempering justice with intelligence and compassion.

Rashon Bennett began imagining a law career in middle school. But he had never met a lawyer until Lloyd Freeman became his mentor two years ago. Bennett, valedictorian of Camden High's Class of 2012, left his hometown last week to start his freshman year at Seton Hall University. Freeman, a litigator at Archer & Greiner, couldn't be prouder. "Rashon is a one-of-a-kind student. He didn't need a lot of hand-holding," says Freeman, 30, who lives with his wife, Ebony, in Sicklerville.

Back in September, the Daily News sat down with 12 Reader Reviewers to watch a selection of new TV shows - "Raising Hope," "$# ! My Dad Says," "The Event" and "Blue Bloods" - before they hit the airwaves. Last week, we followed up with these kinda-critics to see what has become must-see TV and what they're deleting from the DVR now that we're five weeks into the season. "Raising Hope" (Tuesdays, Fox, 9 p.m.), about a quirky family banding together to raise baby Hope, was the clear favorite this year with our Reader Reviewers.

BY THE TIME the district attorney and police commissioner arrived on the scene, confusion and chaos had given way to an almost eerie calm. It was nap time at Children's Village Child Care Center. Aside from the occasional whining often associated with the start of nap time, nothing had happened, certainly nothing that would prompt an intervention by Commissioner Charles Ramsey and D.A. Seth Williams. They were there to make a point: If there were more "high-quality" pre-K programs like Children's Village, they said, there would be fewer crimes to solve and fewer criminals to prosecute.

By Silvio Laccetti The boys are back in town. So are the girls. With their testosterone-fueled tantrums and hormonal hysteria, the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore recently returned to Seaside Heights, and there was trouble soon after they set foot on the sand. Cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was arrested for disorderly conduct; news reports say she was unbelievably inebriated. Then, last week, co-star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was hauled to police headquarters for outstanding warrants.
