Whereas, New York City stands as one of the busiest cities in the world, with over 8 million people living and working together on any given day; and

Whereas, In a city of this size, a large number of emergency and non-emergency situations arise everyday, prompting New Yorkers to seek help from their local police stations; and

Whereas, There remains confusion among New Yorkers regarding which police precinct they should contact and what telephone number they should call; and

Whereas, Such confusion results in greater danger to the people of this city, slower response times by the police, and a greater number of non-emergency calls being made to an already overtaxed E-911 system; and

Whereas, Clearly displaying a police precinct telephone number on all police vehicles would, through advertising of that number, help New Yorkers know the appropriate precinct to call in case of a situation, reduce the number of non-emergency calls being made to the E-911 system, and generally help the public to become more acquainted with its local police precinct; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Council of the City of New York calls on the New York City Police Department to clearly display the appropriate police precinct telephone number on motorized and non-motorized police vehicles.
