The NYPD: Neighborhood Policing

The NYPD’s rollout of its Neighborhood Policing initiative to the 17th Precinct was announced in the summer of 2018. Described by the NYPD as “a comprehensive crime fighting strategy built on improved communication and collaboration between local police officers and community residents,” and a marked departure from the old patrol model, Neighborhood Policing divides precincts into sectors, with the same officers working the same neighborhoods on the same shifts to enhance their familiarity with that sector’s residents, businesses and issues.

Each sector has two officers designated as Neighborhood Coordination Officers who serve as the key liaisons between the community and the police as well as crime fighters and problem solvers. The NCOs do extensive community outreach through Build the Block neighborhood policing and safety meetings and at other venues and encourage sector residents and businesses to proactively voice their concerns and bring quality of life and safety issues to the NCOs’ attention in person, via email, or by phone.

210 East 36th Street is located within Sector A of the 17th Precinct. Our Neighborhood Coordination Officer is:

P.O. Anthony Rivera

O: 212-826-3211

M: 917-318-3852
