Park Slope's top cop creates a Vision Zero 'model' | Capital New York

Good story on the great work DI Ameri is doing in the 78th. 
On the fourth floor of the 78th Precinct, a cyclist and safe streets advocate named Adam White stood up to “commend the 78th Precinct” for its recent sting on drivers for failure to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.Deputy inspector Michael Ameri's precinct, he said, was “setting the standard for police precincts throughout New York City."Not to be outdone, Paco Abraham, a co-founder of New York City’s first political action committee devoted to safe streets—the aptly named StreetsPAC—thanked Ameri for creating a protected bike lane in front of his precinct using police resources and then shoveling snow from that bike lane after the recent blizzard.
I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community.
