COMMUNITY POLICING WORKSHOP AT HOLY NAME CHURCH



Meeting with Neighborhood Coordination Officers
Wednesday, January 25th, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The police officers who patrol Windsor Terrace, Greenwood Heights, and South Slope will hold their fifth monthly meeting with residents and business owners this week. The meeting is solely for residents and business owners in those three neighborhoods.

The two officers are known as Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCO). Their beat (Windsor Terrace, Greenwood Heights, and South Slope) is Sector A of the 72nd Precinct.

Last April, the 72nd Precinct was divided into four sectors as part of a new policing model ("community policing"). Prior to that, the precinct had eight sectors. As a result of April's reapportionment, additional officers have been assigned to the precinct.

An article in Brooklyn Reporter explains the significance of this new way of policing.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 25th, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in Shepherd's Hall in Holy Name of Jesus Church, 245 Prospect Park West, in Windsor Terrace.

The two NCOs, Police Officers Daniel McGrath and Francis Ghanney, want to know what the concerns and complaints of residents and business owners are, such as
  • violent street crimes,
  • home burglaries,
  • theft of packages from front porches,
  • street safety, and
  • anything else that is important to you.

The officers will also update the community about crime and other aspects of their job.

The phone numbers and e-mail addresses of the two officers are
  • Police Officer PDanny McGrath: (917) 853-2601, daniel.mcgrath @ nypd.org
  • Police Officer Francis Ghanney: (929) 343-7645, francis.ghanney @ nypd.org
