Wednesday, May 25, 7pm via Zoom: The 10th Precinct Community Council | Held on the last Wednesday of the month (sans its looming June-August summer hiatus), this citizen-run opportunity to interact with local NYPD leadership continues to take place online, as per Council President Larry O’Neill’s abundance of caution. The lack of physical proximity shouldn’t be mistaken for absence of accountability: 10th Precinct Commanding Officer Captain Robert Gault will still bring his “A” game to the often spirited Q&A session, during which he’s been known to provide info and insights regarding active investigations, and vow to take action on new concerns brought to his attention (hence the “accountability”–attendees will often ask for updates on topics from the previous month’s meeting). For the Zoom link, click here. The Meeting ID: 861 5872 0456 / The Passcode: 840401 / To attend via phone, click here for your local number.
Thursday, May 26, 6pm via Zoom: The 10th Precinct Sector B’s Build the Block Meeting | NCOs, or Neighborhood Coordination Officers are paired up and assigned to a specific sector within an NYPD precinct. The 10th Precinct, charged with serving and protecting much of Chelsea (the 13th Pct. covers the rest) is divided into Sectors A, B, and C. Thurs., May 26 is your chance to meet with NCO reps from Sector B, whose work within the Build the Block program has them taking a special interest in the people, places, and businesses within their assigned boundaries. (In the case of Sector B, that means north side of W. 21st St. to south side of W. 29th St.). For this online-only gathering, the Meeting ID is 160 822 1017 and the Passcode is Police123! (yes, the exclamation point is part of the Passcode–and mind that capitol “P” in “Police”). Your Sector B NCOs are PO Mark Pagano and PO Daniel Bavuso. They can be emailed at, respectively, MARK.PAGANO@nypd.org and DANIEL.BAVUSO@nypd.org. Officer Pagano, by the way, is not on the promo poster (see it above this listing) announcing the May 26 particulars. As such, PO Bavuso will be joined by Sgt. Sean Aman, the NCO Supervisor (SEAN.AMAN@nyp.org). For more info about the 10th Precinct, click here. Meeting times and days are subject to change, so check in with your NCOs or precinct close to the scheduled date.
