DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's contention that the testimony of a police detective impermissibly bolstered the complainant's identification testimony is unpreserved for appellate review (see CPL 470.05; People v Tavarez, 55 AD3d 932), and we decline to review the issue in the exercise of our interest of justice jurisdiction (see CPL 470.15.[c]; People v Staine, 48 AD3d 489; People v Smith, 48 AD3d 489; People v Fagan, 31 AD3d 783).
Furthermore, the defendant was not denied the effective assistance of counsel (see People v Taylor, 1 NY3d 174, 176; People v Benevento, 91 NY2d 708, 713; People v Smith, 48 AD3d 489).
SPOLZINO, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO and ENG, JJ., concur.
