Yonkers Police launch mobile command center


Besides the Mobile Command Center, police also plan a “handshake” initiative
to develop a positive relationship with the community

YONKERS – The Yonkers Police Department has expanded its Neighborhood Protection Partnership efforts, including a widespread community outreach program to target crime and quality of life issues in city neighborhoods.
The expanded effort in the southern portion of the Nodine Hill section of the city, includes a new police mobile command center and an increased police officer presence.
“After the recent acts of violence that occurred this week around the ‘tree streets,’ I’ve asked our police department to organize a comprehensive approach to target the crime and some of the quality of life issues that may have led to the vicious acts,” said Mayor Michael Spano. “We will not tolerate senseless acts of violence in our neighborhoods where responsible and hard-working individuals are trying to raise their families in a safe environment. We are enlisting city departments to laser focus on these streets so that our residents can rest easy at night. They deserve nothing less.”
In addition to deployment of the mobile command center, the effort will include increased street and park maintenance and greater enforcements of building code and parking violations.
The police will also be out with “Stop and Shake,” a grassroots campaign to emphasize the positive relationship between police and the community with a hand shake.
