The Eagle reports that our local 84th Precinct has been added to the NYPD’s neighborhood policing program. According to the Eagle story:
Neighborhood policing — the modern version of the cop on the beat — is meant to build stronger partnerships between police and their local communities. Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs) work closely with the community to identify and manage local concerns, the officials said.
The same two officers will be assigned to each sector every day. They will be briefed on local concerns and given appropriate resources.
When we have further details, such as the identity of our NCO, we will report them.
