NYPD To Staff City Precincts With “Friendly Greeters”

New York City’s CW affiliate reports:

As the NYPD continues to work on improving customer service and neighborhood relations, the department has launched a new greeter program featuring “community guides.”

The Community Guide is a dedicated customer service representative who will serve as the first point of contact to welcome all visitors who come into precincts, according to the NYPD. The goal of launching the program is to enhance overall visitor experience and create a more welcoming, visitor-friendly environment for the public.

NYPD Chief of Patrol Juanita Holmes and Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the program Thursday, saying the program would help rebond the police and community.
