Commanding Officer's Message

As Commanding Officer, I would like to welcome you to the Police Service Area #2 web page. I oversee the activity of over 202 Police Officers and Civilian members of the Police Department.

We patrol 42 Developments within the 73, 75, and the 77 precincts. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for our residents within these developments and the surrounding area. Working with the community we feel that we have been able to identify and address the problems that exist.

Over the last year, I have had the opportunity to meet many members of the community and I am happy to be working in an area known for its high level of commitment and community involvement. The partnership between the local PSA and the New York City Housing Community is central to reducing the crime and improving the quality-of-life in our neighborhoods. The residents have shown that they are willing to commit to making things better. With their continued support we can do better this year.  


Anti-Auto Theft Program — The Combat Auto Theft (C.A.T.) Program is a voluntary decal program which entails a more aggressive police response to auto theft by authorizing investigative stops of participating vehicles. Vehicle stops are made during the hours of 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m., on the basis of two identifying decals affixed to both rear and side windows of the automobile.

Operation Commuter C.A.T. — This program operates the same way as the one above. The only difference is you register your vehicle at the precinct where the vehicle will be parked during business hours. Owners will sign a consent form, which certifies to the Department that the auto is not operated between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

Help End Auto Theft Program (H.E.A.T.) — H.E.A.T. Is a volunteer decal program, operational twenty-four (24) hours a day. Its aim is to combat auto thefts by providing the Police Department with reasonable suspicion necessary to conduct a vehicle stop and investigation whenever a person apparently under the age of twenty- five (25) is observed operating a vehicle bearing HEAT decals. Owners of motor vehicles who are New York City residents and are above the age of forty (40) may participate in this program.

Operation Identification for Vehicles — The program "Operation Identification for Vehicles" involves marking car radios and other valuable parts with a pen that utilizes invisible ink; this ink can only be seen under "black ultraviolet light" which can be used to identify stolen auto parts.

VIN Etching — This program consists of etching your vehicles identification number on your auto glass. You can also get a discount on your insurance.

Bicycle Registration Program — Bicycles enrolled in this program shall be marked with the precinct engraving tools, using a three (3) digit number indicating the precinct designation followed by a four (4) digit number, in numerical sequence of enrollment. This program will ensure that a recovered vehicle is returned to its owner.

Counter-Terrorism Program — The NYPD has established an "Anti-Terrorism Hotline." This program has been established to obtain your assistance in identifying terrorism. If you see someone acting in a suspicious manner you can help by placing an anonymous phone call to 1-888 NYC-SAFE. Remember if you see someone acting in a suspicious manner be conscious of their actions and not influenced by their appearance.

Law Enforcement Explorers — The Law Enforcement Explorer Program was created to encourage boys and girls between 14 and 20 years of age to consider Law Enforcement as a career goal. It instills self-confidence, discipline, and teamwork in its members. The Explorers learn various Police procedures and participate in various Department events and field trips. If you have a child or know of a child who might be interested in, or may benefit from this program you can contact the PSA Explorer Coordinator.
