RIVERDALE-Last night, Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester) joined in at the 50th Precinct Community Council meeting where he presented an award in recognition of the recent promotion of its commanding officer, Dermot Shea, to Deputy Inspector. Under Inspector Shea’s tenure there has been an overall reduction in crime and an 83% increase in arrests for Grand Larceny Auto; an issue which particularly plagues the Riverdale community. Senator Klein spoke with reverence about the Shea family with which Klein is intimately familiar. On Sepetember 11th, 2001Senator Klein spent the day with Dermot Shea's brother, James Shea, who was then the C.O. of the 49th Police Precinct and is nowthe Inspector responsible for Robbery city-wide.Noting that the Shea's sibling rivalry seems to be good for the community, Klein wished Deputy Inspector Shea the best in his future endeavors, as of yet undeclared.
