Cold Cases Not 'As Seen On TV,' Capt. Says


Captain Charles Neacy, commanding officer of the 100 Precinct, gave a presentation last Wednesday on the NYPD's Cold Case Squad to members of the precinct community council. "It's not TV, these are long, drawn-out cases that are hard to work," said Neacy, referring to shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" where crimes are solved in an hour or less. Neacy, who formerly supervised dozens of detectives on the Cold Case Squad, said it may take years to gather the evidence needed to charge someone with a homicide, which he said gives victims' families closure. "We work for them," he said.
