Just an FYI: the 94th Precinct Community Council will NOT be meeting on September 4 as planned. The next meeting will instead be on Wednesday, October 2, at 7 p.m. at the usual location of Church of the Ascension at 127 Java Street.

If you don’t already know, Precinct Community Councils are essentially monthly town hall-style meetings between you and your local police precinct. Typically held in a conference room inside the precinct, these meetings are an opportunity to meet face-to-face with law enforcement whose job it is to make your family safe.

The meetings are largely informal, starting with a summary of the past month’s crime statistics, arrests, and any problematic trends that people should look out for. This is delivered by the precinct’s commanding officer – the person in charge of organizing officers and distributing resources allocated to the community by the NYPD. The Captain’s Report (or Deputy Inspector’s Report, depending on his/her rank), is then usually followed by a brief ceremony honoring the Cop(s) of the Month, and then the question-and-answer session.

All members of the public are welcome.
