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.

A 16 year NYPD veteran, Captain Adelman began his career 1997, serving as a patrolman for four years in Jamaica’s 103rd Precinct and for one year with the Queens South Task Force. He was promoted to sergeant in 2003, and assigned to Harlem’s 28th Precinct, later serving in Patrol Borough Manhattan North.

In 2006, Adelman was promoted to lieutenant and in 2008 he was promoted to captain, serving at various posts throughout Queens.
