Get to Know Your Neighborhood Coordination Officers

Find your sector. Find your NCOs.

Neighborhood Coordination Officers, or NCOs, are your local problem solvers. They spend all their working hours within the confines of their assigned sectors, actively engaging with local community members and residents. They get to know the neighborhood, its people, and its problems extremely well.

Use the map and list below to find your sector and your NCOs. Feel free to email your officers directly, or contact your local precinct, to discuss ongoing crime or quality-of-life issues.
