Chell with CB15 Chair Theresa Scavo during the 2013 Night Out Against Crime.

The 61st Precinct Community Council Meeting will meet at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow, July 9, at YDE School, 2533 Coney Island Avenue.

The meeting will be the last for Captain John Chell, who took command of the precinct in 2012. While still new in his post, he led the community’s police response during and after Superstorm Sandy and played host to Coney Island’s 60th Precinct for several months as they rebuilt their flooded stationhouse. Chell has been reassigned to Brooklyn North’s 79th Precinct, which patrols Bed-Stuy.

It will be the first meeting for the 61st Precinct’s new commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Carlos Valdez, who has served on the force for approximately a quarter-century. He’s already familiar with the area, having most recently served at PSA 1, which patrols public housing developments within the 60th, 61st, 63rd and 69th Precincts.

The Community Council is comprised of concerned residents and top brass from the 61st Precinct, and offers neighbors an opportunity to ask questions and express concerns about crime and safety issues in the area. The monthly meetings are attended by the commanding officer of the precinct, who will present a report on incidents and trends in the neighborhood, and speak face-to-face with neighbors about specific concerns.

For further information, or if you have questions or comments concerning Community Affairs, call (718) 627-6847.

    What is going on at the 61? Why do we keep changing captains???

    • honestpdlol

      The disgusting stench of corruption and impending Federal oversight seems to be forcing the captain out of their trotting ships.

      This is standard procedure. 2 years is fairly standard. CO’s are regularly rotated and captains especially since they’re usually being groomed to become deputy inspectors. The 61 is considered a safe precinct and therefore the luckiest officers are assigned to command it.

      I ditto INFO’s answer. Precinct commanders are routinely rotated, sort of like the Farm System in baseball, so that a guy like Chell is prepared to take on a busier precinct and prepped to be bumped to Deputy Inspector. He seemed like a take charge guy and, despite the critics, overall was an asset to our neighborhood. I am, however, glad to see that he is being replaced by a D.I., a higher rank in the NYPD.

    Good luck to Captain Chell. He will be missed and we thank him for all that he has done for us during his time serving our community.

    I didn’t know the changed captains that frequently. I don’t know if I like the idea of my neighborhood being a training ground…….
