Plan to consolidate Nassau County police precincts postponed
BALDWIN -- The final consolidation of Nassau County's police precincts has been postponed indefinitely.
Officials say it's possible that merging the Baldwin-based First Precinct into the Seaford-based Seventh Precinct may never happen as planned.
They're reconsidering how policing on the South Shore should be managed after the Seventh Precinct building got flooded during Superstorm Sandy.
First Deputy Commissioner Thomas Krumpter told Newsday (http://bit.ly/14Y7Sqc ) it was possible the South Shore would be realigned among three precincts rather than two. He said construction of a new building at a better location also was possible.
The decision to postpone the merger was made by police commissioner and county executive last week.
The original plan called for eight precincts to be consolidated into four, with the closed precincts converted into "community policing centers."
