Please bring signs, stories, testimony, model buses, whatever you’ve got! Byford recently announced the MTA’s new “Bus Action Plan,” a strong plan to improve bus service in New York City, with efforts to speed up buses, reduce board times, and much more. As part of the plan, we promised to take a hard look at new routes. So here’s our chance to put the B71 at the top of his list. So I hope to see you there!

NYPD 76 Pct. Build a Block NCO Meeting Sector C

When: May 24, 2018 6:00-7:30 pm

Where: P.S. 676 on Huntington Street

Neighborhood Police Supporting the sector officers and filling out each sector's team are two officers designated as the neighborhood coordination officers (NCOs). The NCOs serve as liaisons between the police and the community, but also as key crime-fighters and problem-solvers in the sector. They familiarize themselves with residents and their problems by attending community meetings with neighborhood leaders and clergy, visiting schools, following up on previous incidents, and using creative techniques and adaptive skills. NCOs are adding a new dimension to the NYPD's crime-fighting capabilities. They function as adjuncts to the local detective squads, responding swiftly to breaking incidents and developing leads and evidence that might have been missed under the old patrol model. Most importantly, they feel a sense of belonging and responsibility that fosters a willingness to do whatever it takes to keep the neighborhood safe and secure. Some of you already know Officers Class and Jovin. Please come out and meet them as well NYPD Crime Prevention Officer. Hope to see all you there.
