- Ray Normandeau states the following quote:
"Police don't properly respond to quality of life complaints."
I am very disappointed in Ray's ignorance regarding this statement.
As a Law Enforcement Officer who remains highly visible within the
Queensbridge Developments, I can honestly state that I can't
remember ever receiving a call from Ray or his wife. Nor can I
remember Ray giving us credit for taking guns/crack/marijuana,
persons wanted for Robbery/Murder/Assault/Burglary, or just staying
highly visible within the Queensbridge developments. Quality of
Life complaints are now reported thru the new 311 System, from what

How could you? We try to avoid calling the record room or any other
number not available to the general public even tho we may have been
invited to do so, as we are not seeking special treatment.
Due to NYCPD ANI [E911} use we normally would not use a phone line
that would reveal full ID info. Most of our calls such as for shots
fired etc are placed in such a way that we don't have to worry about
ANI. The PSAP dispatchers sometimes give out the full ANI info over
the air without good cause. The bad guys may hear this either due to
proximity to units' radios in the field or via scanners.
We may have mentioned a complaint to Captain Howard but that was only
because we were by coincidence sitting at the same table and
complaint was mentioned in casual conversation. He was not sought out
to make a complaint.

You are welcome [and indeed invited] to post such info here yourself.

That may be correct, we have given up on quality of life complaints.
Most of our calls are for shots fired.
