Update September 26, 2013- More squad cars of the NYPD have been seen driving on the esplanade.
August 29, 2013- Some very unusual sights were seen today by Wagner Park. An NYPD patrol car was driving on the esplanade. PEP electric carts were trailing, but that was coincidental. There was no arrest or obvious reason for the NYPD car.
The other unusual sight was seen when the PEP cart, with two female officers inside, stopped a pit bull owner in Wagner Park to politely inform him that it was dog free park. The situation was handled well and the owner left the park.
BatteryPark.TV has previously reported on the poor patrolling of the parks, and increase in felony thefts. The images of actual NYPD making an obvious “show of force” with a full cruiser vehicle was a sight of progress.
