Neighborhood Conditions Unit
The Neighborhood Conditions Unit is a highly motivated unit which focuses on quality of life offenses within our city. It is a flexible unit that adapts to crime trends and supplements Patrol as well as Criminal Investigations Division functions. Divided into two teams, working opposite days, the unit provides 7 day coverage from the hours of 6PM to 4AM.
The NCU’s primary responsibility is policing the central business district's “night life” area, enforcing penal law, alcohol and beverage control and city ordinance crimes and violations.
Aside from this, the NCU also patrols all public housing property and maintainss and largely enforces the Public Housing bar-out program. The NCU also functions as a training model for new police recruits.
