Over a dozen more officers will be patrolling the streets of southwest Queens after an influx of cops to the 104th Precinct.

Captain John Travaglia, Executive Officer at the 104th Precinct, told the gathering of residents at the Middle Village Property Owners and Resident’s Association that the new officers are showing immediate returns.

“The increase in manpower shows right away,” said Travaglia, who added the precinct is now able to send out six or seven cars per tour, along with specialty units.
Eight of the officers, all of which were assigned to patrol, have been deployed on the midnight tour.

The officers came from impact zones throughout the city.

Also discussed at the meeting was the proliferation of noise complaints — the number one grievance in the city, the officers said — that arise as the weather warms up.

While the officers said “unreasonable noise” is not acceptable at any time during the day, after 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. the allowable decibel level decreases.

Enforcing noise violations is difficult, officers said, because the culprit often turns the volume down when a police vehicle approaches.
