It took awhile, but clamoring uptown politicians have succeeded in meeting with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly about the spike in crime in Washington Heights and Inwood.

"Bureaucracies always work that way,” said state Sen. Adriano Espaillat, who has been leading the clamoring about crime for months now. “But at the end of the day he listened to us.  We made our case and I do think we’re going to see some results.”

Joining Espaillat at the one-hour session at Police Headquarters this past Friday were uptown Council members Ydanis Rodriguez and Robert Jackson and Washington Heights District Leader Maria Luna.  Others were invited but had scheduling conflicts.
