The city’s top cop will be making an appearance in Glendale next month to speak with local residents, Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley announced on Thursday.
Police Commissioner James O’Neill will attend the June 20 meeting of the 104th Precinct Community Council. He’ll be on hand to speak about police-community relations while also fielding questions and concerns from local residents.
The community council rotates its monthly meetings among the neighborhoods the 104th Precinct patrols: Ridgewood, Glendale, Maspeth and Middle Village. Crowley invited O’Neill to come to the June 20 meeting in Glendale, which is also her hometown.
“Keeping our communities safe and maintaining a strong partnership with our local police is always one of the highest priorities. Commissioner O’Neill is a dedicated and outstanding law enforcement leader, who has focused heavily on police-community relations, and I welcome him to meet with our local residents,” Crowley said. “I’m very grateful of the work we have done, hiring more police and improving the quality of our neighborhoods, and look forward to his visit.”
Len Santoro, president of the 104th Precinct Community Council, was thrilled to learn that the commissioner would be stopping by at the next council’s meeting.
“The 104th Precinct Community Council is pleased to have this opportunity to have Police Commissioner O’Neill at our monthly meeting. Our volunteer board and Community Affairs officers work extremely hard to assist in providing opportunities to the community to connect with our precinct in a positive way,” Santoro said.
The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, at the Sacred Heart Catholic Academy, located at 84-05 78th Ave. For more information, call the 104th Precinct Community Affairs Unit at 718-386-2431 or visit the council’s Facebook page.
