Members of the West Village business community in Manhattan/NYC were invited inside the NYPD’s 6th Precinct for a special tour and meet & greet with the Captain and several officers. It was an opportunity for business owners in the neighborhood to catch a glimpse of police operations and meet a few of the individuals in uniform who work to keep their community safe.
The 6th Precinct houses the city’s Bomb Squad, including this K-9, who was the sweetest police dog around – very people friendly. With a nose trained to pick up 16 different scents related to explosives, this K9 officer works hard to keep New Yorkers safe!
This Annual NYPD Precinct Tour program was created by the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, with leadership and support from Florence Chung of The Hetty Group and in partnership with the NYC Police Foundation. Connecting business leaders to their local law enforcement helps build mutual understanding, community partnerships and a stronger, safer neighborhood. Thank you to the NYPD 6th Precinct for the warm welcome inside your “home” and for all that you do to protect, safeguard, respond to emergencies, and work a very complex job.
