The Montague Street Business Improvement District (BID) honored 84th Precinct Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs) Donovan Hunt (left) and John Condon at their annual membership meeting on Thursday for “the amazing job” they do on Montague Street. As NCOs for Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill, Hunt and Condon directly connect to local residents and businesses to solve problems.

“It’s always been a gratifying thing to work with you guys and solve problems in the community,” Officer Hunt said. “When you call us it doesn’t necessarily have to end with the arrest of somebody. We’ll connect you with another agency to get the problem solved that way. Don’t hesitate to call us.”

Officer Condon has worked in the area for years. “The residents, the shop owners, the BID — it’s been a great experience,” he said.

While crime figures in the 84th Precinct are “looking good,” Captain Tyrice Miller reported, the precinct has seen uptick in grand larceny of unattended articles and identity theft. The precinct has also seen a spike in “mailbox fishing” in Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights. The NYPD is working with the US Postal Service to install new slots in mailboxes to prevent thieves from fishing out checks.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

Miller also reported that patrols of Brooklyn Bridge Park and Montague Street have been increased to three sergeants and 24 cops “for the safety of park-goers and residents” this summer season. A patrol car has been assigned to Joralemon and Montague streets after “two or three incidents occurred over the winter time,” he said. “It’s gone down; I hope it stays down,” he added.
