<p>Bedford-Stuyvesant has two police precincts: 79 and 81. The New York City 79th Police Precinct is located at 263 Tompkins Ave., on the southeast corner of Tompkins and Greene Avenues. The commanding officer of the 79th precinct is Deputy Inspector Peter J. Bartoszek. The role of the police department in every neighborhood is to provide a safe environment for its residents, their guests and business owners. Each precinct accomplishes this through combatting violent crimes, narcotic sales and usage, and addressing issues that affect a person's quality of life. Precinct 79 holds its monthly meetings, which are open to the community, on the fourth Wednesday of each month.</p>
