MIDTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — New police commanders have taken the reins in the two precincts that cover much of Midtown and Hell’s Kitchen.
The Midtown North precinct, covering the northern part of Midtown as well as Hell’s Kitchen between 42nd and 59th streets, will be led by Deputy Inspector Megan C. O’Malley.
She succeeds Inspector Mark Iocco, who is moving to Patrol Borough Manhattan South, which supervises nearly a dozen Manhattan precincts.
Meanwhile, the 10th Precinct, which includes the southern stretch of Hell’s Kitchen, Hudson Yards and Chelsea, is now led by Captain Robert Gault. Former commander Deputy Inspector Kevin Coleman is moving to Patrol Borough Bronx, the NYPD said.
Both commanders assumed their new posts in late September.
O’Malley comes to Manhattan from Brooklyn’s 76th Precinct, covering Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Red Hook. A more than 10-year NYPD veteran, she had previously worked in Central Brooklyn’s 70th Precinct,
