DA Brown Visits 101 Precinct Meeting


Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, in office for close to 19 years, addresses community members at the 101 Precinct's Community Council meeting on November 18. Brown reported that homicides are down in Queens by 19 percent in 2009. "We also have the best arrest to arraignment time in the city," said Brown. "This means the cops are out on the streets more quickly [than other officers]."

Among the topics he covered were pending legislation to expand the DNA database to include all of those convicted of misdemeanors and felonies; and the problems pertaining to gangs and getting guns off the streets. Brown said they are hopeful about doing another gun buy-back next spring. Photos by Miriam Rosenberg. Brown also took time to answer questions from residents.
