New Commander Meets Precinct Council
Captain Adelman assumed command of the precinct on January 30th of this year. He replaces outgoing Deputy Inspector Scott Olexa, who has now gone on to the NYPD Fleet Services Division.
Noting that he will continue the many working relationships started by Olexa, Adelman added, “There is nothing more important than the safety of the community. The community is the eyes and ears of the Police Department. I will work to serve the needs of the community 24/7.” The Community Council’s next General meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 27th at 7:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 333 Beach 90 Street.
The 100th Precinct covers Arverne, Belle Harbor, Breezy Point, Broad Channel, Neponsit, Rockaway Park and Roxbury. It also encompasses Gateway National Recreational Area, which includes the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Fort Tilden, Riis Park and Breezy Point park area.
