Community Council

President: Cesar Vasquez
Meetings: The 23rd Precinct Community Council meets every third Thursday of each month. The meeting begins at 6:00 P.M. in the 23rd Precinct located at 164 East 102 Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue. The council is made up of residents who have a desire to work with the Police Department to improve the quality of life in our community.

Once a year we hold a Precinct open house. This enables residents to meet the police personnel that service the community as well as familiarize themselves with the facility and the everyday functions of the precinct. For further information please contact the Community Affairs office at 212-860-6430.

The Ride A Long Program was implemented to give community residents an opportunity to observe first hand, the everyday functions and responsibilities that our officers encounter. If you are interested in riding along, the days are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. or 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. for a period of up to two hours. For further information you may contact the Community Affairs office at 212-860-6430.
