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.
