For the last 10 years, Police Officers Daniel Weinman and Giuseppe Lisio have patrolled the 115 Precinct that covers Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst & North Corona. Over the years, these officers have gotten to know the area and its residents. As fixtures in the community, Officers Weinman and Lisio jumped at the opportunity to become Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCO) when their precinct officially became an “NCO” command in July of 2017.
Since becoming NCOs, these two officers’ interactions with the community have expanded expediently. From attending community board meetings, to visiting elderly victims of crimes, their roots in the community continue to grow. Whenever a crime occurs in their sector, the officers hear about it almost immediately.
This day was no different. When they arrived at the 115 Precinct, Officers Weinman and Lisio went over the details of a grand larceny and immediately set out to look for witnesses. After canvassing the area, the officers quickly obtained footage and set out to see if any neighbors or businesses recognized the perpetrator. Luckily, a local Astoria Boulevard employee recognized the suspect. Ultimately, the perpetrator was brought into police custody without incident and the vehicle was returned to its rightful owner. Just another day in the life of a Neighborhood Coordination Officer in Queens.
