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.

Today marks the 30th anniversary since Police Officer Michael Buczek and Christopher Hoban were shot and killed in the line of duty while protecting New York City. On the evening of October 18, 1988 Michael and his partner were answering a radio assignment at a building near 161 Street & Broadway in the confines of the 34 Precinct when their keen policing sense took over and they noticed a group of men conducting a drug transaction. After approaching them, a foot chase ensued and that is when the suspect turned and shot Michael in the chest. His partner tried to render aid, but unfortunately Michael passed away a short time later. On that same evening, less than just three short hours apart, Police Officer Christopher Hoban was shot and killed while working a narcotic operation. "It's hard to believe that it’s been 30 years to the day since Michael and Chris were killed. On that day our department and our city suffered two great losses, " Police Commissioner O'Neill. Over the past three decades legacies have been built in both their names, the Michael Buczek Little League, the Hoban Run & memorial scholarships. Michael and Christopher may be gone, but their commitment to the City of New York will never be forgotten.
