It’s not exactly what the NYPD means by neighborhood policing.
Four female cops, including at least two neighborhood coordination officers, from the 33rd Precinct in Washington Heights face possible discipline for posing with two G-string-clad male strippers at a senior center Mother’s Day event.
In the photo, all four female officers are smiling — with one gleefully pointing to the stripper’s G-string — as a second stripper, wearing a sailor hat, dances in the background.
An NYPD recruit appears to have taken the picture.
Two of the cops were identified by sources as Sector David NCOs Amber Guzman and Nathalie Lebron.
The photo was taken May 13 at the annual Mother’s Day celebration at the ARC Senior Center on Broadway near W.173rd St. — and quickly circulated through the NYPD over the weekend.
“What were they thinking?” chuckled one police source.
Sgt. Jessica McRorie said the cops weren’t aware the strippers would be present at the event.
“The senior center participants encouraged the officers to pose for the picture,” she said. “The commanding officer is aware and will address the incident at the precinct level.”
Neighborhood policing is one of the cornerstones of the NYPD’s current crime-fighting philosophy, with NCOs spending chunks of their time building bridges with residents, merchants, community groups, all with an eye on learning about crime and conditions.
