88th Precinct Community Council

Community and NY Police Department working together!

Who We Are "Precinct Community Councils"



The Community Affairs Bureau was established to foster positive and productive police-community relations. Positive and productive community relations are accomplished when mutual understanding and partnerships with community residents, clergy, community leaders, business owners and stakeholders occurs. Our mission is to establish and maintain proactive relationships and open lines of communication with vested persons to address their questions and concerns in an effort to improve the quality of life in all neighborhoods. By gathering intelligence, dispelling rumors, disseminating accurate information and working collaboratively with other City agencies and community-based organizations we can better work with those persons living and working in the City of New York.


Community stakeholders have a great deal of input in shaping the climate of their communities, by sharing information and working together with the New York City Police Department. This relationship is an important one.

 

History

New York City Police Department Community Councils were established in 1943. Today there are a total of eighty-six (86) New York City Police Department Community Councils throughout the five (5) boroughs. The Councils play an integral role by serving as a conduit of information between the police and community residents, clergy, community leaders, business owners and stakeholders; raising awareness and ensuring the needs of the community are reported and addressed. Community Councils are comprised of volunteers who give of their time, effort and who are committed to the betterment of their communities. Volunteerism is a core component in reinforcing the social fabric in our communities.
