NYC residents to have input in selecting NYPD precinct leaders

NYC residents to have input in selecting NYPD precinct leaders

Captain, my captain!

The de Blasio Administration wants community residents to have a say in who leads their precincts — describing it in a Thursday announcement as a “team process.”

 “Police and community working together… this really lends to an environment where it’s a team process,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said touting the reform.

The announcement was made along with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

“This is a major step forward it’s going to be implemented right away,” the mayor said.

Few details were provided as part of the announcement.

The public’s involvement, though, will be advisory — leaving the final decision up to the NYPD.
