NYPD’s ‘Uncle Rodney’ Talks Neighborhood Policing Initiative


Assistant Chief Rodney Harrison says he’s the man in charge of making sure Police Commissioner James O’Neill’s neighborhood policing initiative is on-track.

Right now, neighborhood coordinating officers, known as NCOs, are in 35 precincts and all of the housing police services areas.

“In the next month or so, we are going to hit up another four commands, and then in three months we are going to hit up another four commands,” Harrison said. “So by the end of 2017, we should be done with three-quarters of the commands throughout the city.

“It is all about getting the right manpower and the right police officers, the right amount of police officers in the precincts to have the philosophy work in every single precinct,” Harrison continued.
