Comprehensive approach designed to fully engage community
as coequal partner to keep neighborhoods safe, support officers, and
keep crime at historic low levels
NEW YORK—Mayor de Blasio and New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton today unveiled One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere,
a groundbreaking plan of action to guide the work of the nation’s
largest police force. The plan outlines a series of strategic changes
that taken together form a new comprehensive framework for neighborhood
policing – building a true partnership with neighbors and residents in
the fight against crime.
The plan recognizes that the best way to keep crime at historically
low levels, and drive it down even further, is to engage and activate
community members as coequal partners in the fight against crime like
To achieve this critical goal, One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere introduces
a comprehensive, pioneering plan for neighborhood policing. The
plan is designed to solve the central problem in implementing the
community policing ideal: providing officers with the time and training
necessary to deepen relationships within the communities they
serve, and transforming the role of officers from traditionally
reactive responders to calls for service into something more –
proactive problem solvers in true partnership with the community. The
result, already being felt in four pilot precincts, is increased
community engagement for officers, yielding collaboration and increased
trust and respect between police and the communities they serve. This
reduces and prevents crime, improves quality of life for all New
Yorkers, and builds stronger relationships between residents and cops.
“Over the last year and a half, this administration has embarked on a
vision of reform to overcome decades of challenges between the police
and the communities they serve while also driving down crime. From
equipping officers with new technology and enhanced training, to
reducing unnecessary stops, profound changes in policing are already
underway, and their effects are being felt across the city,” said Mayor de Blasio. “With One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere,
we take the next step and apply our vision on the grandest scale yet
to ensure the people of this city have a police force that is deeply
connected at the neighborhood level, where police officers are deployed
consistently in those communities to build relationships and deepen
trust, and community members are fully engaged and mobilized partners in
the mission to keep our streets safe.”
“Today, the NYPD steps into a new era – an era in which the
Department brings policing in this city to a new level – where officers
are empowered to achieve what so many aspired to when the joined the
NYPD: To be the guardians and protectors of every community of New
York, working in partnership with the residents of those communities
and, ultimately with every public and private entity, to make every part
of the city safe and fair for everyone,” said Police Commissioner William J. Bratton.
One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere is a central pillar of
the Police Department’s broad plan to define and implement new
initiatives in five key areas, otherwise known as the Five “Ts”.
Since May, the neighborhood policing plan has been piloted in
four precincts in Washington Heights (Manhattan) and the Rockaways
(Queens). In the coming months, the program will be expanded to
additional precincts across the city, with a specific focus and
emphasis on high-crime areas. In developing this vision, the Police
Commissioner and members of the Department met with hundreds of
community leaders to help identify existing challenges and realistic
and workable solutions. In addition, Mayor de Blasio announced the
addition of 1,297 new officers as part of the final budget negotiations
with the City Council. The force equivalent of much of this new
staffing will be dedicated to One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere.
Key features of the plan include the division of a precinct into four
or five fully staffed sectors, as opposed to the existing eight to ten
sectors that often aren’t fully staffed; newly-drawn sector boundaries
that closely conform with neighborhood boundaries; the establishment of
Neighborhood Coordinating Officers (NCOs) in each sector to identify
and manage community concerns; and dedicated time each day for NCOs to
be out in the community to establish and nurture relationships. The
plan establishes “true sector integrity,” where the same two officers
are in the same sector every day with the potential for an additional
two regularly-assigned cars depending on the sector’s crime rates; the
designation of two newly-created Neighborhood Coordination Officers per
sector who will have the resources and training to work within the
community to leverage NYPD assets and partner agencies to help address
local problems; the allocation of four cars and eight officers for
precinct-wide rapid response; and the utilization of technology and
databases at officers’ fingertips in the field.
Critically, officers will have built-in time to address issues that
go beyond the crunch of standard radio calls. Officers will now have
the space to meet with residents in their neighborhoods, attend
community meetings and address issues beyond incoming calls for
service. Morale for both cops and community will grow as they partner
in the shared interest of combatting crime and improving the quality of
life for the community.
The pilot programs have demonstrated some promising initial
developments. In the 34th precinct pilot – site of today’s press
conference – for the period of May 18 to June 21, crime in the seven
major categories is down 13.6 percent for this year compared to last
year (114 crimes in 2015 vs. 132 crimes in 2014). Over the last 28-day
period in the 34th precinct – May 25 to June 21 – crime in the major
seven categories is down 18.9 percent (87 crimes in 2015 vs. 107 crimes
in 2014). There were zero shootings in the 34th precinct during this
period compared to two last year. Over this same period, robberies are
down 39 percent (14 vs. 23) and felony assaults are down 42 percent (14
vs. 24). Furthermore, response times have improved over this 28-day
period, from 12 minutes, 19 seconds in 2014 to 10 minutes, 38 seconds
in 2015, which local police commanders attribute to more officers in

“Community policing works; after 22 years protecting and serving
this city in a bulletproof vest, I can say that with confidence. The
NYPD has long suffered from a public relations crisis in the
communities they police, leading to neighborhood mistrust, declining
officer morale, and unnecessary obstacles to making New Yorkers safer.
Over the last year and a half, I have shared many conversations with
Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton on our shared vision for a new
model of community policing. By actively engaging police officers with
community residents, handling local concerns and connecting with City
services, we can change the paradigm of what policing is for the better.
Pilot programs have shown putting more community-engaged police
officers on our street corners will make us safer, and I look forward
to every precinct benefitting from similar results,” said Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.
“I applaud Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton for the 'One
City: Safe and Fair Everywhere' plan. This is similar to Mayor David
Dinkin's 'Safe City, Safe Streets' initiative, which reduced crime in
record numbers and developed a positive environment and exchange
through community policing,” said Congressman Charles Rangel. “I
look forward to seeing a successful implantation of the much
needed-plan that will help strengthen relations between the residents
and the Police who protect and serve the neighborhood.”
Congressman Eliot Engel said, “Strong bonds of trust and open
lines of communication with the community are vital tools for the NYPD
as they work to keep New York the safest big city in the country. And
these relationships offer New Yorkers the chance to feel safe,
protected, and invested in the well-being of our neighborhoods. I am
pleased that Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton are taking these
concrete steps to keep us safe and foster trust between communities and
“I have long been a believer in community policing, when our men and
women in blue walk through neighborhoods and develop relationships
with the communities they have sworn to protect. Mayor de Blasio’s
launch of One City: Safe and Fair Everywhere is a significant and
welcome initiative. I commend Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton
for their leadership on this issue and I look forward to working with
them, the police force, and the community to ensure the successful
implementation of these changes,” said Congressman Gregory W. Meeks.
“The Mayor and Commissioner’s vision of neighborhood policing is a
positive approach for ensuring that officers and the community work
together to solve problems in the neighborhood,” said Congresswoman Grace Meng.
“It is critical that residents and police be partners in fighting
crime, and I thank the Mayor and Commissioner for working to ensure
that this partnership exists.”
“Getting police officers back into the community and out from behind
a desk is an important step in improving New York City’s approach to
policing,” said Congressman Jerrold Nadler. “We need to be
interacting, not just reacting to events in our communities. That is
how we create a more visible, more responsive, and more efficient NYPD.
Community policing makes our streets and neighborhoods safer and
allows officers to better serve the needs of New Yorkers, and I commend
Mayor de Blasio and Police Commissioner Bratton for their work in
bringing this strategic plan forward.”
“This comprehensive and groundbreaking plan will bring a new
approach to policing and crime reduction in our city. By engaging the
community as an equal partner, transforming the role of police
officers, and incorporating cutting edge technology, Mayor de Blasio’s
plan will help build trust between police officers and the communities
they protect. This plan is an important step forward in police
community relations, and will help the NYPD function more effectively,
engage and partner with the neighborhoods they police, and continue
crime rate reductions,” said Congressman Jose Serrano.
Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez said, “Recent months
have proven that much work remains to improve policing and repair the
relationships between our community and the NYPD. It is my hope that
these reforms will take meaningful steps in that direction.”
"I applaud Mayor de Blasio and Police Commissioner Bratton for
introducing such a dynamic plan to improve policing in New York City.
This innovative plan that will not only
strengthen relationships between civilians and officers by creating new
levels of trust and comfort, it will also help keep the crime rate
historically low. 'One City: Safe and Fair Everywhere' will better
protect and serve the 8 million plus that call this city home," said State Senator Jose M. Serrano.
"More police officers in more neighborhoods more closely tied to the community means a safer and fairer city," said State Senator Daniel Squadron.
"Thank you Mayor de Blasio, Commissioner Bratton and the City Council
for increasing the police force and encouraging community engagement."
“The bridge between the community and the police is long overdue,
especially addressing key issues that would keep our communities safe
versus people in the community feeling like targets,” said Assembly Member Rodneyse Bichotte. “Mayor de Blasio's One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere
is the right step towards building a partnership and a dialogue
between and the NYPD, taking every effort to help heal wounds that
prevent our ability to work hand-in-hand with each other. I applaud the
Mayor in his steadfast approach and his continuous efforts to
“We are our Brother and Sisters Keeper, and we must live that out in our communities and with our policing”, said Assembly Member Michael A. Blake.
“In order for us to keep our residents safe, rebuild the trust and
ensure that our young people are seen as children first rather than
criminals, we needed a new vision for our policing efforts. As
Co-Chair of the NY Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Caucus’
Criminal Justice subcommittee, I commend Mayor de Blasio and
Commissioner Bratton for taking these necessary steps to rebuild our
“Trust in the criminal justice system is essential to good policing.
Communities must feel that justice is being applied fairly to believe
that the system is working properly. The One City: Safe and Fair – Everywhere plan
takes direct aim at improving trust in the criminal justice system and
it recognizes that it must start at the lowest level – on the streets.
By strengthening relationships between police officers and communities
we can ensure that distrust in the criminal justice system is a thing
of the past,” said Assembly Member Joe Lentol.
“The One City: Safe and Fair Everywhere program recognizes
that strong and engaged relationships between the NYPD and residents of
the neighborhoods of our great city is key to ensuring that our
vibrant city remains the safest and best city in the world for people
from all backgrounds to live, work and raise their families. I commend
Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton for implementing this
groundbreaking plan which will allow the hard-working and dedicated men
and women of the NYPD the opportunity to build trusted and true
partnerships with the residents they serve. It is my firm belief that One City: Safe and Fair Everywhere will create strong bonds throughout the five boroughs rooted in the virtues of courtesy, professionalism, and respect,” said Assembly Member N. Nick Perry.
"Mayor de Blasio's One City: Safe and Fair - Everywhere is a well
thought out plan to improve the way we police the City of New York. The
plan to include neighborhood policing is especially important to help
rebuild trust between the police department and our communities. Pilot
programs have already shown success, and I look forward to seeing it
expanded city wide," said Assembly Member Luis R. Sepúlveda.
“Engaging community members as partners in public safety is critical to our success as a City,” said Council Member Vanessa L. Gibson, Chair of the Committee on Public Safety.
“I am thrilled that the NYPD is undertaking a collaborative policing
strategy that allows officers the opportunity to better know the people
they serve. This plan, driven by data and derived through the
engagement of local leaders, is part of an overall cultural shift
within the NYPD. I am hopeful that we will continue to see programs
that target the end of discriminatory practices and focus instead on
supporting our officers and protecting our streets. I commend the
Commissioner Bratton and the NYPD for their efforts to rebuild strained
relationships within the community and am thankful to Mayor de Blasio,
Speaker Mark-Viverito, and my Council Colleagues for recognizing that
the safety of New York is dependent on a fully staffed police
department and for their continued support of our officers.”
“The City Council believes in the need for more police officers who
are truly invested in the communities they protect. We are fully
engaged and looking forward to collaborating with Mayor de Blasio and
Commissioner Bratton on their new strategy for neighborhood policing
and deploying neighborhood coordinating officers. I thank the mayor and
the commissioner for responding to the Council’s call for more
officers and for starting to bring reform to the force,” said Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland.

I KNEW that SNEU was completely done when they started bringing in collars for SPICE - that synthetic marijuana that they sell in 'head shops' and bodegas. I couldn't believe that SNEU's priority in a precinct that was awash in heroin, zombies and burglaries (ie. the 83) were collaring mopes for this cheap thrill B.S. After there were a couple of ODs blamed on this junk, in typical NYPD fashion, the SNEUs were ordered to pull out all of the stops and lock some people up to demonstrate that the Department was "DOING SOMETHING" to address this latest menace that was ruining the lives of inner city youths. Conditions Units have been an absolute, total joke for as long as I can remember. Conditions Units, for the most part, have done LESS THAN NOTHING to address serious / Index Crime because their focus was arresting mopes for nonsensical bull s h i t t e r y merely to generate a number, thereby taking cops off the street, generating reams of meaningless paperwork and accomplishing NOTHING. Well, actually, they did accomplish one thing that I can point to. Their silly collars caused ANOTHER Patrol Sector to leave patrol and cease handling radio runs to transport their collars to Central Bookings. Of course, the Conditions guys were treated like sacred cows who were 'too valuable' to do prisoner transports and, as always, doing their drudge work fell to the slugs riding in Sectors. Think that bum that hacked up that girl at Bryant Park the other day who had 23 priors. I would bet my mortgage that he was a frequent flyer for some Conditions Unit(s) who continually locked him up for bull s h i t, for which he was never incarcerated. Locking up homeless scrappers, LITERALLY generating 60 different arrest numbers for some lone jerk off graffiti tagger, bike on sidewalk enforcement, 511s, collaring flower salesman and just wasting paper and everybody's time and effort FOR NUMBERS. Good riddance to bad garbage. IF there is one unit that existed SOLELY for CompStat Meeting purposes, it was Conditions. I applaud the Department's shift to reactionary, "feel good" policing. It almost assures that diBlowzio will be a one-term Mayor. BRAVO!!!!
