Two police precincts in Queens have experienced some major changes in leadership over the weekend.
Deputy Inspector Thomas Conforti, the head of the 109th Precinct, which serves the neighborhoods of Downtown Flushing, East Flushing, Queensboro Hill, College Point, Malba, Whitestone, Beechhurst and Bay Terrace, was transferred after two years of service and assigned to the Crime Prevention Division in Manhattan as their new commanding officer.
“[The] 109th Precinct has been a major part of my life and will continue to be, as I have many family and friends that still call it home. In conclusion, I would like to give a heartfelt Thank You to Vana Partridge, Chrissy Voskerichian and the entire 109th Precinct Community Council,” Conforti posted on the 109th Precinct Council Community Facebook page on May 13.
Conforti will be replaced by Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison, who is leaving her post as the commanding officer of 112th Precinct, which serves the neighborhoods of Forest Hills and Rego Park.
“We appreciate her dedication to our community during the past 22 months. We congratulate her on her success,” the 112th Precinct Community Council posted on May 14 on their Facebook page.
The 112th Precinct will be led by Captain Robert Ramos, according to the Facebook page. “Captain Ramos assumes his position as Commanding Officer of the 112th precinct on Monday. We wish him the best in our community,” the precinct wrote to greet their new commanding officer.
