New Commander At 101st Precinct
On Thursday, October 31st Maloney, who led the precinct through Superstorm Sandy and the difficult weeks and months that followed, confirmed that he was being transferred to Astoria to take over command of the 114th Precinct. His successor took over the reins of the 101st effective on November 1st.
Maloney, who arrived in Rockaway as a Captain and left as a Deputy Inspector, said it was hard to leave the 101st Precinct and the people who live here.
Taking over for Maloney is Deputy Inspector William Wynne. The new commander of the 101st Precinct has a resume that should serve him well in the many aspects that make up the precinct.
Wynne began his career with the NYPD in 1993 on patrol at the 107th Precinct.
He has served at the 46th Precinct in the Bronx; and at the 107th, 108th, 111th and 115th precincts in Queens. Wynne spent time at Police Service Area 8 which serves the Housing Bureau in the Bronx; Narcotics Borough Bronx; Narcotics Borough Queens South; Patrol Borough Queens North; Detective Borough Queens; and Transit Borough Bronx-Queens at Transit District 11. He was the commanding officer of Transit District 12, also in Transit Borough Bronx-Queens, for a year and a half prior to coming to the 101st Precinct.
