Captain James B. Ryan

Greetings from the 94th Precinct. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. As we begin a new year it is important to reflect on the past as well as look to the future. This month marks exactly one year since I came to the 94th precinct and I need to thank the Greenpoint, Northside, and East Williamsburg communities for the warm welcome. It is only through successful partnership between the 94th Precinct and the community that we are able to continue to fight crime and improve the quality of life for our neighborhood residents. In 2014 we will continue the work we started and develop new initiatives to address changing trends in our growing communities. The NYPD Explorer and Cops and Kids PAL programs are important collaborations between the precinct and our community youth. We invite you and your families to contact the precinct to learn more. We remind you to remain aware of your surroundings… if you see something, say something! James B. Ryan Commanding Officer

Great job to the 94th Pct Cops & Kids flag football team who made it to the Brooklyn North Championships losing to the combined 83 & 81 Pct’s team. It was a good time for all. We are looking forward to the upcoming basketball season beginning in February.

Citizen’s Police Academy
The Citizen’s Police Academy was first implemented in 1993 as part of the Department’s ongoing effort to develop a working relationship with the community. This 14-week program is offered 2 times per year: during the spring and fall. Participants are nominated by the Commanding Officers of every Precinct, Transit District, and Housing Police Service Area. Experienced Training Bureau instructors provide training in the legal, social, and procedural aspects of policing. In addition to core courses, other areas of study include firearms discipline and counterterrorism. Lectures, electronic media, role plays, simulations, and workshops are utilized to educate community members about police training and tactics, with the goal of having participants acquire a better understanding of the authority and limitations of the police. The information and insight gained from the program allows all involved to assess their roles and responsibilities in fostering effective and productive police-community partnerships.

94th Pct. Explorer Park Clean Up 2013

The 94th Pct. Community Council, through fundraising and donations, distributed toys to families within the Greenpoint & North Williamsburg communities. A big thanks goes out to our President Elizabeth Hulsen & Community Council Board, Pastor Amy Kienzle of the Lutheran Church of the Messiah, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Assemblyman Joseph Lentol and all who contributed.

The 94 Pct. Explorers led by Police Officer Kirssi Pantaleon participated in a fall clean up this past Fall. Monsignor McGolrick and McCarren Parks were cleaned. This was a great way for our members to give back to Greenpoint and encourage other youth to join our program.
