As a Tuesday meeting of the Fabrique Neighborhood Association indicated, city officials will have to make the case for moving the Patrol East police substation to Central and Greenwich. Residents near the current Edgemoor substation don’t want it to move, and some near the proposed new station don’t want it in their backyard (as if some kind of development isn’t inevitable there). As it is, the Edgemoor location puts officers near some transitional neighborhoods that are coping with renewed gang activity. Can officers still be as effective from several miles away? City Hall needs to ensure the answer is “yes” or risk leaving Patrol East’s current neighbors feeling abandoned.
