Expect a long report from the Deputy Inspector at tonight’s 61st Precinct Community Council. The command has had one heck of a month.

There have been two public murders – one on Avenue U and one in the Nostrand Houses. There was also that stabbing and beating on Avenue T, which occurred just a day after the last Council meeting.

Then there’s that whole Halloween mess with Gerritsen Beach (here, too!) - luckily they only have good things to report about the rest of the precinct, which was relatively quiet.

The precinct may also face questions about the NYPD SUV that flipped over yesterday, which left many trying to figure out exactly what happened.

And let’s not forget the elephant in the room: quotas. They’re back in the public eye, with the Daily News exposing some memos at the 77th Precinct that quotas are alive and well, and the Governor signing a law that prohibits retaliation against officers who don’t meet their requirements.

So, come one, come all to the 61st Precinct Community Council meeting tonight at 7:30 p.m. The meeting is hosted by the Bainbridge Center at 3093 Ocean Avenue, between Shore Parkway and Voorhies Avenue (across from Waldbaums).

      I don’t usually post entire meetings in one shot, but I usually do the Deputy Inspectors’ statements, plus anything interesting that comes out of it.

    Please find out why there was a stabbing on Ave. T. also.
    I will be watching Hell’s Kitchen instead of reliving it.

      If it’s mentioned, I’ll let you know. As a member of the press, Sheepshead Bites does not ask questions during community meetings. There are different channels we must go through.

      Yes. All the meetings we post here are public, unless otherwise noted.

        You mean a concerned citizen actually has to show up and ask questions, then it can be reported.
        Damn can I send it proxy?

        Is it gonna take place in 61st Precinct? or somewhere else?

          It is not at the precinct. The address is in the article:
