Our efforts have won more local police officers

Amid mounting concerns about quality-of-life public safety issues in Washington Heights-Inwood, I posted a petition online on Sunday calling for the addition of 20 officers to the 34th Precinct. In just 2 1/2 days 500 people have signed on. And I am thrilled to report that our message is getting heard: Dept. Inspector Capul, commanding officer of the 34th, called to tell me that he is assigning an additional 9 officers to the night-time Quality-of-Life Conditions Squad! I will be delivering a print-out of our petition to him so that he can read the many specific points which everyone has raised in the comments section.

We definitely still want to keep the pressure on, so continue to pass on the link for the petition to anyone who hasn’t yet signed: http://www.PetitionOnline.com/more4d34/petition.html.

Thank you very much. As much as there are so many common complaints, there are also as, if not more that are unique in terms of the offences, locations etc. Some are site specific, some are general locations.

Thanks again.

Thank you. Was this petition delivered to Commissioner Kelly and Mayor Bloomberg? It really needs to go to them, as promised. They need to know about the problems we face up here, not just Capul.

Thanks again.
