To ensure more continuous coverage citywide by community officers, the New Rochelle Police Department PACT (Police And Community Together) Unit has reorganized policing beats into three zones, beginning this month.
Beat officers interact with school and neighborhood associations, civic groups, youth groups, religious organizations, and the business community. PACT officers have begun visiting commercial and neighborhood corridors to distribute customized flyers for each zone, with phone numbers for the beat officers as well as a zone-specific email. The officers within the three zones- north, central and south will coordinate coverage and information, benefitting both residents and businesses. All beats will be overseen by PACT supervisors Lt. Gary Robinson and Sgt. Kyle Wilson.
“The goal of PACT policing is to foster a strong relationship between the New Rochelle Police Department and the community we serve,” said Police Commissioner Joseph Schaller. “This transition will enable us to give greater focus and more consistent attention to each of the zones and ultimately, to the City overall.”
