According to the NYPD 114 Precinct web site:
Neighborhood Coordination Officers, or NCOs, are your local problem solvers. They spend all their working hours within the confines of their assigned sectors, actively engaging with local community members and residents. They get to know the neighborhood, its people, and its problems extremely well....

NYPD 114 Precinct Sergeant Brian Andruszkiewicz adds:
The 114 Precinct Neighborhood Coordination Officers have set up a safety meeting to discuss some community concerns and some ideas that you have to make your community a safer place.

 reported in this April 13 post:
... The 114th Precinct went to the new module of community based policing in October 2016. This module of policing is broken down into Steady Sector Officer's, Neighborhood Coordination Officer's (NCO's) and response auto's.

Roosevelt Island is zoned in Sector David (sectors are defined zones within a command) and has two (2) permanent NCO's assigned to cover that sector.

Steady sectors are given several hours a tour "off-patrol" time, meaning they attend community based meetings, conduct community outreach, or whatever else specific to their sector needs to be addressed. The NCO's are tasked with coordinating with the residents in their sector, such as; attending community based meetings, identifying specific community issues, formulating solutions to those problems, just to name a few....

... Roosevelt Island not only has two (2) Officers or NCO's assigned, they now have steady sector cops patrolling the area as well. This means the same cops patrolling the Island on a regular basis... This allows for stronger relationships between my officers and the residents of Roosevelt Island....

NCO's assigned to Roosevelt Island:

PO Keith Matthes (

PO Joseph Esposito (
Deputy Inspector Fortune encourages Roosevelt Island residents to get to know the NCO's assigned to our community and let them know about specific problems and issues.

Many of the issues concerning Queens residents of Sector David are different than those on Roosevelt Island. Officers Matthes and Esposito plan on attending a future Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Public Safety Committee meeting to hear our specific concerns.
