The de Blasio administration wants community residents to have a say in who leads their precincts — describing it in a Thursday announcement as a “team process.”
“Police and community working together … this really lends to an environment where it’s a team process,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said in touting the reform.
The announcement was made along with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.
“This is a major step forward, it’s going to be implemented right away,” the mayor said.
Few details were provided as part of the announcement.
The public’s involvement, though, will be advisory — leaving the final decision up to the NYPD.
