I want to welcome everyone who lives and works in the First Precinct. Our community is diverse and vibrant and experiencing tremendous growth. With that comes challenges as our neighborhoods become more residential and some become true 24/7. The First Precinct has addressed those challenges and worked hard to improve the quality of life and public safety.
The First Precinct Community Council is our vehicle for working directly with the men and women of our precinct and provides a monthly dialogue with our Commanding Officer and his Team. We can achieve real results for our whole community but it’s up to you participate. Please join us at our monthly meetings. It’s important to hear from everyone about what’s working and what needs our attention. I look forward to seeing you.
Captain Edward Winksi holds up log book with President Obama’s signature after his visit to the 1st Precinct on May 5, 2011
At 12:30 p.m. Thursday, President Barak Obama’s limousine pulled up to the 1st precinct stationhouse in TriBeCa, just blocks from the World Trade center site. Once inside, there was a strong show of the support from the New York City Police Department.
Officers proudly showed off where the commander-in chief signed into the stationhouse’s log book, with his name and “God Bless.” “On a personal level, it was an honor to meet with him, to say thank you and shake his hand,” said Lieutenant Franco Barberio of Emergency Services.
