Throgs Neck tenants say relocating PSA Eight will increase crime
Bronx residents are unhappy about the possible decision to move the officers of PSA Eight from their long-time station house in Throgs Neck.Residents say that crime will increase if the officers are moved from the Throgs Neck Houses. They said they will fight the move in every way possible to make sure the area stays safe. They are also worried about officer response times. The housing police force has been located at 2794 Randall Avenue for more than 10 years. The PSA Eight officers are responsible for 26 other housing developments. One development is in Soundview, which is one possible location for the new station house.The Throgs Neck Houses Tenant Association President is expected to attend a meeting Thursday where he said he hopes to learn more about the development's safety.Community Board 10 and the New York Police Department's Housing Bureau were reportedly considering building PSA Eight a new station house one block away from where it is now. It appears that idea is no longer being considered.
