The 108 precinct is completely understaffed. LIC and Sunnyside have grown into a small city and yet only 1 detective was on duty at a time. I called 911 last week because a man who had just walked into my building trying all the doors and lying about why he was there. He then walked to our other building and tried to do the same. There was a young woman in there alone and I told the operator that I was worried he would attack her. I was watching on the cameras. They NEVER showed up. Another time a man was having a psychotic episode and was attacking people. It took them 45 minutes to show up. There needs to be either another precinct in the area or a huge overhaul of the precinct.


seriously stupid. i was walking on queensboro bridge earlier this year and a homeless guy literally tried to accost me despite it being like 6 ish in the evening and people walking on the bridge and of course all the cars on the bridge. i ran down the bridge and saw two cops and told them my story and they literally shrugged and were like we know this guy he is a homeless crazy person. apparently he had thrown empty bottles at people earlier in the day. NYPD arent concerned until shit really hits the fan


Why wait so long to tell us NYPD? Compstat has people fooled into a sense of FALSE security that crime is down. Real New Yorkers know it is not.
