Earlier this month, we told you about the 7th Precinct’s new community policing initiative. It’s the NYPD’s way of putting more cops on the beat — in closer contact with local residents. The precinct is now split up into three areas. There are two Neighborhood Coordination Officers in each section, who are the main points of contact for the community. As part of the program, there will be public meetings in each area.
Tomorrow night (Thursday), there will be a Neighborhood Safety Meeting in Sector A, which covers the part of the Lower East Side below Grand Street. You can see an interactive map here.
The meeting will take place at Gouverneur Community Center, 605 Water St., 7 p.m. It’s a chance to meet your local officers and express concerns about public safety issues in the neighborhood.
