The NYPD shuffled the deck among its commanding officers at three local precincts this week.

Capt. Christopher Manson, who led the Ridgewood-based 104th Precinct for more than two years, was reassigned to command the 110th Precinct based in Elmhurst. Deputy Inspector Ronald Leyson, who spent the last three years at the 110th Precinct, moved on to the NYPD Queens North Detective Bureau based in Forest Hills.

Leyson bid farewell to residents, while Manson made his introduction to them, during Thursday’s 110th Precinct Community Council meeting in Corona. Both officials took to Twitter to extend their gratitude to the communities they served.

“I have been transferred to the 110 Pct and wish to thank the officers of the 104th Pct and the community for 2 years of pleasure and honor,” Manson tweeted.

“To my 3,200 followers, thank you for helping me share important info, good work & events of the 110th Pct (I had some fun with it, too),” Leyson tweeted. “As my final tweet – to the men & women of the #110Pct -it has been my honor & privilege to work with you-thank you for making a difference!”

Meanwhile, a familiar face took the reins at the 104th Precinct: Capt. Mark Wachter, who as recently as 2010 served as the precinct’s special operations coordinator. Most recently, he led the NYPD’s special Citi Field command, which coordinates policing at the home of the New York Mets.

Additionally, the NYPD named Deputy Inspector Deodat Urprasad, formerly commander of investigations at NYPD Patrol Borough Manhattan South, as the 102nd Precinct’s new commander. Urprasad takes the reins at the Richmond Hill-based command from Deputy Inspector Henry Sautner, who moved on to the NYPD Brooklyn Detective Bureau after more than two years of service at the 102.
