A Night With NYPD’s Neighborhood Coordination Officers In Harlem

March 1, 2018

PIX11 News walked the streets of Harlem Wednesday evening with Police Officers Fausto Gomez and Dominick Martorelli. Both are Neighborhood Coordination Officers in the 25th precinct.

“This is a throwback to that community policing, that cop on his beat on a street,” Officer Martorelli explained.

They communicate with people in the area and try to help them understand that the police department is moving in a new direction.

“When they are having problems in the neighborhood and they don’t want to call 911, and they want the problem resolved, they’ll give us a call and we’ll try to resolve it right there,” he said.

Wednesday night they invited community members inside for a Build the Block meeting. It was an opportunity for people to share concerns and learn about crime statistics in the neighborhood.
