The welcoming committee was out in force at this seasons open meeting of the 68th Police Precinct Community Council. The hoi polloi of the hood, including Borough President Markowitz, Maureen Stramka of the DA’s office, Eileen Sacco reigning president of the 68th Police Precinct Community Council, Col. Mike Gould, the Garrison Commander at Fort Hamilton, Rev. Khader El-Yateem of Salam Lutheran Church, Sgt. Joseph Nicotra of the 68th and Zoe Koutsoupakis senior veep at Marathon Bank, were on hand to give a hand to the new CO, Rich DiBlasio, who took over the reigns from Deputy Inspector Eric Rodriguez this summer. “I hope to keep things going where they’re going,” said DiBlasio. “There’s a very good rapport with the police department and the community.” Watch out would-be criminals — DiBlasio is in the house (and he ain’t soft on crime).
