Over the last year the NYPD has been rolling out a new neighborhood policing strategy. The new Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs) are officers assigned to specific neighborhoods or sectors in their precincts and dedicate their time engaging with the local community, getting to know their neighborhood, and serving as direct contacts for residents and business owners to help solve problems in their area.
NoHo is situated in the 6th and 9th NYPD Precincts. The 6th goes west starting on the west side of Broadway and the 9th goes east starting on the east side of Broadway. The NCOs in the 9th Precinct started about a year ago and have already been working closely with the NoHo BID on issues in the neighborhood. We are excited that the 6th Precinct will now have NCOs to serve the east side of our district.
For emergencies still call 911, but if you have ongoing problems you would like the NCO's in your area to know about, reach out by email or cell phone.
