New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio takes calls from listeners, specifically about improving police-community relations in all neighborhoods.
Mayor de Blasio also praised new NYPD Commissioner Jimmy O'Neill, calling him the "architect" of neighborhood policing.
"I wanted the person who could best achieve neighborhood policing...but also repair the relationship between police and community."
"I'm a believer, Brian, in folks who understand every part of the job," BdB tells @BrianLehrer of Jimmy O'Neill, compares to Carmen Fariña— Ben Max (@TweetBenMax) August 4, 2016
@BrianLehrer amazing point from this caller. I have lived in NYC for 35 years and haven't known a cop by name EVER!— Chef Sasha (@ChefSashaHS) August 4, 2016
