NYPD’S 109th Precinct talks reduced crime rates in Flushing, address residents’ concerns during community council meeting

Dozens of Flushing residents filled the hall at Bowne Street Community Church to hear reports of reduced crime and applaud the Officers of the Month during the 109th Precinct Community Council Meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Attendees also had the opportunity to voice their concerns to their local officers and to ask any questions. 

Jerry Fillipiddis, president of the community council, led the meeting, with local Council Member Sandra Ung also in attendance.

Ung addressed the crowd and ensured that she would be working with the precinct’s new commanding officer, just as she had with Deputy Inspector Louron Hall, who recently stepped down from the position, with Capt. Juan Terrero taking over as acting commanding officer in the interim.
