Members of the NYPD leadership team met with business leaders in Brooklyn today, December 8, 2015, to discuss ways the two groups can work together to keep New York City safe. The meeting, coordinated by the New York City Police Foundation, was part of a broad communication effort promoting a two way dialogue between the police and the communities it serves.
The business leaders were given presentations on the new and innovative approaches the NYPD is taking to ensure that the Department is protecting New Yorkers from criminals and emerging threats while also developing sustainable relationships with communities to foster an atmosphere of mutual trust.
This includes the Community Partner Program, the Neighborhood Policing Plan and the Strategic Communication Initiative.
NYPD Members in attendance included Assistant Chief Terence Monahan, Chief of Department’s Office, Assistant Commissioner Jonathan Murad, Strategic Communications, and Deputy Chief Rodney Harrison, Brooklyn North.
Business leaders in attendance included: Kenneth Daly (National Grid), Robert Catell (Stony Brook University), Edward Miller (American Express), Rick Russo (Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce), John Williams (Reel Works), and Thomas Flood (St. Francis College).
